Conn. gunman once wrote of a mother shot in head

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Documents show the gunman in last year's Connecticut school shooting wrote a violent book in the fifth grade that included passages in which a character shoots his mother in the head.

The homemade manuscript is titled "The Big Book of Granny" and was among items seized from Adam Lanza's home. Details are in documents that were part of a report released Monday.

Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a rifle in Sandy Hook Elementary School in December. He fatally shot his mother in the head, then drove to the school, carried out the killings and committed suicide.

The documents say the main character in Lanza's book has a gun in her cane and shoots people. There's nothing to indicate Lanza ever handed the book in at school.

The son character sinks his mother to the bottom of the ocean with a "cement floatation device." Another character likes hurting people, especially children.
