Evil Visits Connecticut

From Fox News:

Twenty-seven people, including 20 children, were killed Friday when a gunman clad in black military gear opened fire inside his mother's kindergarten class at a Connecticut elementary school.

The shooter, who sources identified as Adam Lanza, 20, shot his mother in the face at their home in Newtown, Conn., then went to nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School where she taught and gunned down her entire class, according to sources. Lanza was found dead inside the school, according to officials. Eighteen of the children and six more adults were dead at the school and two more children died later, according to Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance.

- No motive is known for this crime - nor will one, even if identified, ever be understood.

- The guns used, two handguns, were legally owned by the mother, the shooters first victim. A .223 assault rifle was found in the killer's car.

- Lanza was mentally ill, apparently suffering autism and a 'personality disorder.'

- After murdering his mother, reports are that Lanza went to the school where she taught, Sandy Hook elementary, murdered several people in the school's office before going to the mother's class room and executing all of the children in the class.

- Pray for the souls of the murdered and for the comfort of their families.
