Police investigating the Newtown school  killings have been looking into the possibility that gunman Adam Lanza may have  been copying a video game as killed 26 people in the massacre.

Two months after the horror at Sandy Hook  Elementary School, little remains known about Lanza’s motive.

Before the killings, he had smashed his hard  drive, making his online trail and habits impossible to follow, but police did  reportedly find thousands of dollars worth of violent video games.

It is believed that Lanza played the games,  which included the Call of Duty series, for hours on end.

Along with the video games, Adam Lanza also  learned how to fire guns during numerous sessions with his mother Nancy Lanza at  a shooting range, where the two ‘bonded.’

The Hartford  Courant reported today that  detectives are probing whether Lanza may have been copying a scenario from one  of those video games as he fired rounds from his mother’s Bushmaster assault  rifle in two classrooms at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December  14.

Her landscaper Dan Holmes told the paper:  ‘She said she took her kids target shooting, that they bonded over  that.’

Lanza, who was 20 years old, is the face behind the ruthless murder of 20 first-graders, six adults and his own  mother  that shook the quiet Connecticut town.

He then turned one of his weapons on himself  as police closed in.

Nancy Lanza was Adam’s first victim on the  morning of the Newtown killings, shot dead in her bed at extremely close range,  possibly while she was asleep.

Before that, she was seen as a dedicated  mother to Adam, who had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and a sensory  integration disorder (an aversion to bright lights and loud noises), according  to the Courant.

She had enrolled and pulled Adam into  numerous schools over the years after growing unsatisfied with the  education  he was receiving.

She  was planning a move to Washington state with the hopes of getting her son back  into a college program.

But  Adam Lanza also received an education on weapons from his mother, who took him  target shooting at a gun range for years.

Richard Novia, a security chief in the  Newtown School system who moderated the tech club – of which Adam had been a  member – said he disagreed with Nancy Lanza’s recreation with her  son.

He told the Courant: ‘It’s a serious  mistake, first of all. If you have a child in the home with mental disorders, or  learning disabilities, to have involved him with guns in the first place would  be bad.’

Days after the Sandy Hook shooting, Nancy  Lanza’s sister-in-law Marsha revealed that she had traveled to nine cities in  three countries because she wanted out of the mansion she shared with her  troubled son Adam – and could have known the end was coming.
