Newtown elementary school killer Adam Lanza was reportedly trying to top another infamous mass-murderer from Norway.
New details emerged Tuesday in a CBS report on what may have motivated Adam Lanza to shoot his mother, 20 children and six adults at an elementary school and himself in Newtown, Conn., two months ago.
Lanza, who had a love of violent video games, wanted to compete with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011, CBS reports. Citing unnamed sources, CBS said Lanza targeted the Sandy Hook Elementary School near where he lived because it was the "easiest target" with the "largest cluster of people."
CBS says Lanza was likely acting out the fantasies of a video game in his killing spree, which in his mind added up as a "score."
