Mother and brother of suspected school shooter found dead

More than two dozen people, including as many as 18 children, have been killed during a school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut outside of New York City early Friday.

According to preliminary reports, at least one gunman opened fire inside of an office at Shady Hook Elementary at around 9:40 a.m. Friday. Police have verified that the suspected shooter has been found dead on the scene while other reports, still unverified, cite the possibility of a second shooter. Police have a second person in custody but have not confirmed any charges.

At least two weapons have been recovered from the slain gunman. The age and identity of the deceased have yet to be made public, although federal sources speaking on condition of anonymity claim one of the assailants was a 24-year-old man with ties to the school. CNN has identified him as a local man named Ryan Lanza, whose mother was also a school teacher at Sandy Hook.

According to the network, Lanza's mother, Nancy, was killed inside the school. His brother, whose name has not been released, was also reported dead.

Just repeating what I'm seeing (although I admit it just adds to the confusion).

6. I'm goign to lock this - RT has removed this report

and put up another one in which the headline says the same at the moment, but the body just says about the brother:

"The suspectís older brother is being questioned by the authorities. "

I think the RT stories are updating too fast to be an LBN thread of their own.
