    Report: Lanza Motivated by Norway Shooter

    Anders Behring Breivik listens to the judge in the courtroom, Friday, Aug. 24, 2012, in Oslo, Norway. A chapter of a terror case that has haunted Norway for 13 months ended Friday as confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik was declared sane and sent to prison for bomb and gun attacks that killed 77 people and injured 200 others last year. After deliberating for two months, a five-judge panel in Oslo's district court handed down a sentence of "preventive detention" of at least 10 years and a maximum of 21 years for the right-wing extremist.

    Law enforcement officials tell CBS that Adam Lanza, who killed 26 children and teachers in Newtown, Connecticut, was trying to outdo Anders Breivik, who killed 77 in Norway in 2011. Breivik bombed downtown Oslo before shooting teenagers gathered at a nearby island for summer camp. Officials say Lanza targeted Sandy Hook because it was the "easiest target" with the "largest cluster of people." Sources also say evidence shows Lanza was acting out fantasies taken from videogames. A police spokesman commented Monday that it is still "mere speculation" to try to understand Lanza's motives.
