In addition to the dead gunman, NBC is reporting that a second person is in custody, and that FBI agents are investigating a house in New Jersey in connection to the shooting.

NEWTOWN CT. Details are coming in about the horrific shooting in Newtown CT at Sandyhook Elementary School. CNN is reporting that the suspect is Ryan Lanza, 24. We seem to have Lanza's primary target in the Newtown shooting: Lanza's own mother, who was a teacher at the school. Lanza, of course, didn't stop there, he fired round after round at children and adults in Newtown's Sandyhook Elementary School.

In addition to Ryan Lanza, who is now dead, NBC is reporting that a second person is in custody regarding the Newtown shooting, and that FBI agents are investigating a house in New Jersey. The second man's potential connection to the Newtown shooting or Lanza is unclear.

Ryan Lanza was dressed all in black, and opened fire at children and adults at Sandyhook Elementary school in Newtown, CT. Reports currently state that 27 people are dead, 18 of them children. A van has been found a short distance from the school.

The Newtown shooting story is still developing and updates will be coming in throughout the day.
