1. MSNBC has been reporting it as a Ryan Lanza. Reporter claims it has been sourced x3.

17. That information is not correct

A law enforcement official identified the shooter as Adam Lanza...

6. +1!

My stepsister is FB friends with a Ryan Lanza she went to college with - his hometown is Newtown and he lives in NJ, and he just posted updates that he is not the shooter. But because people are too impatient to wait for all the information to come out he could very well get death threats.

11. You never can tell these days

But he doesn't look the type - perhaps the type to drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon and hang out at coffee shops, but not this. Sorry, trying to laugh when I can.

9. His name is Ryan Lanza

and his younger brother is in custody in NJ. I heard this on CBS NY channel 2 just now. His mom was a teacher at the school she is dead. He's 24.

18. On CBS they just said that

Federal officials want everybody to stop with the name thing. Confusion as to which brother was the shooter and which is in custody in NJ.



They have been reporting the 'Ryan' name all day.

19. Some seriously irresponsible reporting

Especially when it comes to names, I wish news outlets wouldn't put out incorrect information.

20. Prophetic

They are now saying the shooter may NOT have been the man originally named. It seems the shooter was not the person named in the ID he was carrying.

They are now speculating it was his brother. <---- note the word speculating
