The shooter who killed 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 was interested in child pedophilia and began contemplating the attack as early as March 2011, according to newly released FBI documents.

The records indicate there’s no evidence that Adam Lanza acted on his interest in pedophilia.

“The shooter did not ‘snap,’ but instead engaged in careful, methodical planning and preparation,” the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit wrote, according to the Associated Press. “The shooter was fascinated with past shootings and researched them thoroughly. The shooter shared many similar characteristics and behaviors with other active shooters.” 

A document by the behavioral analysis unit indicated that an unidentified woman who had an “online relationship” with Lanza for two years told the FBI that Lanza expressed interest in pedophilia and said it could be “possibly beneficial to both parties.”

The FBI source also said Lanza was obsessed with mass murders and ha meticulously documented them on a spreadsheet.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter lined up students before unloading his rifle, according to a new book by President Obama’s spiritual adviser, Joshua DuBois, the New York Daily News reports.

“The President’s Devotional: The Daily Readings That Inspired President Obama”  describes the horrific scene at the elementary school.

“How the gunman treated the children like criminals, lining them up to shoot them down. How so many bullets penetrated them that many were left unrecognizable. How the killer went from one classroom to another and would have gone farther if his rifle would’ve let him,” wrote DuBois, according to an excerpt of the book.

With DuBois at his side, the president met with families after 20-year-old Adam Lanza gunned down 26 people, 20 of whom were children.

“The President took a deep breath and steeled himself, and went into the first classroom. And what happened next I’ll never forget,” wrote DuBois about the heart-wrenching meetings.

Shooter Adam Lanza, who killed 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school, and his mom visited a shooting range before Friday’s tragic events, the Associated Press reports, citing the ATF.

The agency declined to identify the shooting range or give more specifics

What’s clear, according to the ATF and AP, is that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, practiced firing her weapon at a shooting range several times.

Investigators are trying to determine whether her son ever fired a weapon there.

The AP said Lanza shot his mom four times in the head before unloading his gun at the elementary school.
