    Police said on Saturday that suspected gunman Adam Lanza forced his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary School before going on a shooting rampage that killed 26 people, including 20 children. Those who knew Lanza said Saturday that he was "deeply disturbed" and "subject to outbursts,” and that he had "a lot of mental problems."
