A 20 year old boy, Adam Lanza wearing a black military gear yesterday opened fire on a Connecticut elementary school killing 20 children and four adults before killing himself.
The shooting has brought again to the fore the rampant incident of public shootings across America. Among victims of the shooting was the mother of the shooter whom he was said to have had a disagreement with earlier.
He was said to have first opened fire in the Principal’s office before moving from class to class wearing a bullet proof vest, shooting children of the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
When his gun went silent, he had slain 20 children and four adults. His elder brother whose identity card was found on the dead shooter was whisked away by the police for questioning.
The shooting is said to be the second biggest in the history of United States of America. His father was also found dead in their home while his girlfriend and another friend are yet to be accounted for.
