NEWTOWN, Conn. - Police say it's clear that the gunman who opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School Friday was on a mission to kill as many people as possible. He took at least three guns and multiple clips of ammunition to target a defenseless elementary school and children as young as five.
Police say 20-year-old Adam Lanza was armed for a mass murder when he attacked a target he knew very well.

Lanza, whose mother was a teacher at Sandy Hill Elementary arrived in the school parking lot driving his mother's Black Honda.
He was carrying two lethal semi-automatic handguns: a Sig Sauer, the type of gun carried by Secret Service agents, and a Glock 9mm, a model used by many police officers and federal agents across the United States.
Please keep the families and friends of those affected in your prayers.
