Even though most TV networks (namely CNN) reported that the man who shot 20 kids and six adults earlier today at Sandy Creek Elementary School in Newtown, Conn was 24 year old Ryan Lanza, the real shooter was his 20 year old brother Adam.

Ryan and Adam’s parents (who were both found dead) were divorced, and each of the children lived with a different parent.

Relaying information he obtained from a “reliable federal law enforcement source,” Fox reporter Rick Leventhal reported the following:

“I want to update our viewers on information from a reliable federal law enforcement source who says the shooter in this case may not be Ryan Lanza, but his brother.

Ryan Lanza is in custody in New Jersey and that Adam, 20, is, in fact, the shooter and used an assault rifle and a glock handgun and may have killed his father in New Jersey and then gone to his mother’s home here near Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut, killed his mother and went to her kindergarten and slaughtered every child in the classroom.

We’re told the death toll is 26 including 20 children and five adults … The shooter is confirmed dead and I’m told the shooter is, in fact, Adam Lanza and his brother, Ryan, may be in custody. I am told the two weapons were registered to his mother.”

We at Elite apologize for repeating the false information declaring that Ryan was the shooter. CNN along with other media outlets mistakenly told the world that Ryan had shot his brother Adam (along with 20 kids and six adults), when really it was the other way around.

It’s safe to say that this was one fucked up family and their problems are most likely in some way responsible for the death of twenty six innocent people.
