The gunman in America’s worst school shooting was carrying hundreds of rounds of ammunition during his killing spree, police said.

Adam Lanza, 20, opened fire with a high-powered rifle inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday morning, killing 26 people. Twenty of the victims were children, all aged six or seven.

Police said he used a Bushmaster AR-15 type weapon against most victims, but killed himself with a handgun. A shotgun was left in his car outside the school.

“There was a lot of ammo, a lot of clips,” State Police Lt. Paul Vance said. “Certainly a lot of lives were potentially saved.” [full story…]
