Speaking to press in Newtown, Conn., Sunday afternoon, Lt. J. Paul Vance described the evolving timeline of Friday's event, which led to the death of 26 at Sandy Hook elementary school (not including the shooter and the shooter's mother, found nearby). Vance announced that alleged shooter Adam Lanza had fired “hundreds of bullets,” using multiple 30-bullet magazines in each of his guns. Lanza’s own death, he says, has officially been ruled a suicide. In reference to recent social-media hoaxes plaguing Newtown, the officer warned that anyone who “threatens or harasses … using social media of any kind” will be fully investigated and prosecuted. Offering more details on the recent church evacuation, Vance confirmed that a threat was received by phone at the St. Rosa of Lima church.
