BRITISH Boy Dies Sandy Hook Massacre Connecticut Elementary Shooting Benjamin Wheeler The mother of the Connecticut gunman, who was the first of his 27 victims and was killed with a rifle she owned, was "prepared for the worst", according to people who knew her. Adam Lanza's aunt said Nancy Lanza had a survivalist mentality and was worried about protecting her home if the US economy nosedived. She is reported to have been stockpiling food in the large home she shared with her 20-year-old son in Newtown, Connecticut. Nancy Lanza, 52, who friends said kept her private life private, owned and registered the two handguns and rifle her son used in Friday's shooting. The weapons were among half a dozen firearms legally registered to her, authorities said. The divorced mother-of-two was found dead in her pyjamas in bed after being shot four times in the head with the rifle. After leaving the house, the gunman then went to Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown with the weapons he took from her. He got inside by breaking a window and began blasting his way through the building and murdering 20 children, all aged six or seven, and six women.
