Hours after what is being called the worst primary school shooting in U.S. history, authorities still aren’t officially naming the gunman. Media outlets at first misidentified the suspect. Here’s Fox News with an update.

“What we are being told at this hour is that the shooter is 20-year-old Adam Lanza, that his 24-year-old brother Ryan was taken into custody in Hoboken and questioned.”

Ryan Lanza reportedly told police his younger brother has a personality disorder and is on the autism spectrum. Ryan is still being held by police, but CBS says that’s standard procedure. (Via ABC News)

“When you see him being led away in handcuffs, we can’t read a lot into that. That means they haven’t sorted out what he is but he’s not charged with any crime, he’s not technically under arrest...”

The AP reports the two men’s mother has been identified as Nancy Lanza, and that she was one of the dead. The gunman reportedly entered the school wearing all black, and possibly a bullet-proof vest. MSNBC has more.

“The person with the gun carried two handguns into the school, 9mm pistols … and two other firearms in the car which were not used.”

The latest reports from police say 18 children were pronounced dead at the scene, two more pronounced dead later in the hospital. Six adults were also killed, including the school’s principal. The shooter was also found dead at the scene.

That puts the total number at 27 including the shooter. But police say there may be another victim from a different crime scene. Here’s CNBC.

“There is a second crime scene, they say, in Newtown, Connecticut, where an adult was found deceased at that location.”

Police continue to investigate the link of that crime scene to the school, but have confirmed they believe there is a connection.  Authorities say, they won’t release any further information about the gunman, nor the weapons used, until they feel confident they have all the details correct.
