Adam Lanza is believed to have a personality disorder. He 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. Witnesses say he was going from room-to-room shooting people after first killing the principal Dawn Hochsprung and psychologist execution-style in the main office. Officials said most of the slaughter occurred in two classrooms, and one entire class is unaccounted for. Parents who have not been united with their children are assuming the worst. One witness told WCBS: 'Police just told us everyone presumed missing is in the school and they are dead.'
