Adam Lanza, 20, who is said to have a personality disorder, was carrying a .223 rifle and two handguns when he entered the Sandy Hook Elementary school shortly after 9.30am and started gunning people down - after he shot his mother Nancy, 52, in her face at her nearby home.

Officials said most of the slaughter occurred in two classrooms, and one entire class is unaccounted for.
