Gunman's New Jersey Brother Cooperating With Police
NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation of the Connecticut school massacre said the brother of the gunman has been "extremely cooperative" and was not under arrest.
The official told The Associated Press that 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, of Hoboken, New jersey, was still being questioned but was not in custody and was not believed to have any connection to the school killings.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the investigation.
The official said Ryan Lanza's computers and phone records were being searched but only "in an abundance of caution." He said Ryan told authorities he had not been in touch with his brother in recent years.
