New details released about Sandy Hook shooting


Eyewitness News has learned new details about what happened inside Sandy Hook Elementary School during the shooting in December.

On Dec. 14, Adam Lanza shot and killed his mother at their home, then went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 26 children and adults. Before the school shooting, authorities said he shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, four times in the head while she slept at their home.

The final report is still being put together and state police have said they expect it to be released this fall. However, sources released details on the investigation to Eyewitness News Friday.

Jesse Lewis was one of the first graders, who lost his life inside of his elementary school on Dec. 14. Lewis's mother told Eyewitness News investigators have told her Jesse yelled for his classmates to "run" when the killer entered the classroom. Six of Jesse's classmates were able to get out, however Lewis was shot and died.

Eyewitness News has learned some of what will be in that report including how Adam Lanza's bedroom was immaculate when police first entered it.

A source with knowledge of the investigation said his clothes were all on hangers. All of the clothes were white or beige. His socks were neatly folded.

Eyewitness News has also learned that some people inside the school the day of the shooting were not located for hours, even after police did the initial sweep of the building.

On Friday, state police said they are handling the investigation and continue to say they are still working on the case. Once completed, it will be handed over to the state's attorney for the Newtown area.

A source told Eyewitness News there are some interviews with some of the first responders are being done again because written statements conflicted with what police dashboard camera video shows. The source said there were no issues, but they want to check statements, since the report is going to be intensely scrutinized.

It's also still unclear how much of the report will be released because Connecticut modified some of its freedom of information laws. The concern is some of the information would be too graphic and hard for the victims families to deal with again.
