Newtown, CT - The Sandy Hook gunman suffered from autism, according to Ryan Lanza, his older brother. The state chief Medical Examiner, Dr. H. Wayne Carver ll confirmed on Saturday, that all of last Friday's victims were each fatally shot between three to eleven times to the heads, torsos and extremities inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School by Adam Lanza, 20.
On Friday, Lanza of Newton, New Jersey forced his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary School before 9:30 a.m. with four weapons including a Bushmaster semi-automatic .223 Caliber rifle. He then shot at least 26 people including 20 children (12 girls and 8 boys) from a first grade class between the ages of 6 to 7 years-old.  Principal Dawn Hochsprung, school psychologist Mary Sherlack and teachers were also killed in the melee. Two of the 20 children shot at the scene briefly survived, but later succumbed to their fatal wounds and died at a local hospital.
Lanza also suffered a self-inflicted wound inside a classroom and died at the school. Police found Adam's mother (Nancy Lanza, 52) body at her Newtown home near the school. She was fatally shot in the face while sleeping in her bedroom earlier in the day. Then, Lanza went to the elementary school and shot the children including those trying to protect and shield them.
A total of 27 people were murdered and with Lanza's suicide totaled 28 who died in the Sandy Hook massacre.
Initially, Adam's brother, Ryan was believed to have been the gunman, but he was taken into custody by police for questioning. Adam was mistakenly identified as Ryan, 24, which later it was determined that Adam who suffers from autism had been the actual shooter.
The mass murder at Sandy Hook became the worst and deadliest elementary school massacre in U.S. history.
Lanza's mother had previously worked at Sandy Hook as teacher's aide, but recently had no connection to the school. Most of the students were first graders who were targeted and killed by Lanza.
Newtown Police, Connecticut State investigators and the FBI continue to investigate the crime incident.
President Barack H. Obama will visit Sandy Hook and is expected to speak to the victim's parents on Sunday evening.

The Connecticut State Police released the names of the deceased victims.
