Investigators later found he had so much ammo left on his rifle and his two pistols, but yet he killed himself after slaughtering 27 people. I know he heard COPS coming but they wouldn't enter the school for another long while. I'm kind of curious on why he decided to kill himself so quick.

He had spent as much time as he could killing people, and only ended himself when he spotted a police officer down the hall.

Imagine a fucked up creature like Lanza in prison. No computer, no being able to tape up any windows he may walk passed, having to talk to other inmates.

I think that was his motivation to kill himself as soon as he thought any police were on site.

He probably wouldn't have been sent to prison, but a mental institution.

It still would've been a walking hell for him. He had a burning hatred for therapists and held mental health institutions in contempt.

i assume because law enforcement arrived on the scene so quickly. had they been delayed, he might have moved onto another room. he wasn't going to risk being taken alive. it simply wasn't an option. it was very fortunate the police response was so quick, or more lives would surely have been lost.

One theory I remember reading about was that mass shootings can be incredibly exhausting for the perpetrator. It was described in Rampage Nation by Louis Klarevas if I remember correctly. A shooting as brief as Sandy Hook can still be remarkably draining, especially when you pair this with Adam's already established malnutrition. If this theory is indeed correct, then it's no surprise that Adam would choose to kill himself so suddenly, despite being able to potentially further his kill count, if only by a small margin. Of course, the presence of law enforcement would further incentivise his intentions, but I believe Adam would have killed himself within a fairly small time frame regardless of the circumstances.

Of course he existed.

Whoever said he didn't exist needs to stop. Of course he did, it was not just some plot by the government, he is real. I'm so tired of hearing people say he isn't.

The whole case is fishy to high heaven. I'm convinced the whole thing was a hoax. Or at least it didn't happen the way it was portrayed.

Well he doesn't exist anymore. Because that's what happens when you die. You cease to exist.

He was probably paranoid about the police entering the school so he shot himself so he wouldn't risk getting killed or being taken alive. Sure the police wouldn't actually enter for another five minutes but he had no way of knowing that.

Someone once said that is was also because his AR15 allegedly jammed but im not sure about this , if anyone knows it then do correct me. Other then that it was of course cause of the fast police respond times

This is what the official report says:
Quote :
The Bushmaster rifle was found with the safety in the “fire” position. There was one live 5.56 mm round in the chamber and one PMAG 30 magazine in the magazine well. The magazine contained fourteen live 5.56 mm rounds of ammunition. The rifle did not appear to have malfunctioned when observed by the WDMC van unit, but a CSP-ESU report described the weapon as appearing to have jammed. When tested later, the rifle functioned properly.

he may have done it with the pistol due to it being easier to aim at your own head.

It would have been "safer" for him to have shot himself in the mouth instead of the back of the head (less chance of missing the brain-stem and accidentally paralyzing/blinding yourself). I imagine he shot himself there because he thought it would look cooler or because other shooters shot themselves in that way.

If his shot didn't kill him, what would probably be his injuries?


imagine if he survives and ended up looking like a crippled space alien? Very Happy

His shot would have killed him not matter what; he hit the brain-stem, which controls the body's most basic functions. However, he would have been REALLY messed up if he aimed slightly above or below; If he aimed above he might have damaged his Occipital lobe, blinding himself. If he aimed lower he could have shot his spine instead, paralyzing him from the neck down. Personally, I would have gone the route of least risk and put it in my mouth.

What would have happend if he blinded or crippled himself? I'm sure the cops would have finished him off, remember the first cops to enter Dunblane Primary school kicked Thomas Hamilton so hard it broke his ribs.

At that point it would be a mercy killing.

Because police entered so quickly. They entered five minutes after the first shots were fired. He actually did shoot and kill for as long as he could and didn't actually kill himself until he was directly spotted by police. He was walking in the hallway outside the classrooms of the slaughter and police had entered and briefly spotted him, Adam likewise also saw them and ducked back into one of the two classrooms where the slaughter had taken place, and killed himself.

It's almost kind of weird to think that it only took him five minutes to kill over two dozen.

Murder in English had a section devoted to him and the writings he left behind. His shootings were created by pedophile intrest and his inability to ever meet his desire.

He was also bat shit crazy.

It's because he used the AR-15, which can fire 45 rounds per minute, and sadly it seems he used it with deadly efficiency.

It's almost kind of weird to think that it only took him five minutes to kill over two dozen.
It's because he used the AR-15, which can fire 45 rounds per minute, and sadly it seems he used it with deadly efficiency.


I didn't know an AR-15 could fire 45 rounds a minute, I'm surprised Adam was able to shoot 80 rounds in one minute with that fire-rate, it's so impressive, the police tried to replicate shooting 80 rounds a minute and failed.

AR-15 is not a gun, its a style of gun. But anyway, like, when did the police try to replicate that?

I apologize for that mistake, I should've focused harder to realize the mistake.

In Sandy hook: The Deadliest Minute, I remembered hearing the police tried to replicate the fire-rate and failed, that was all I heard mentioned, no date.

Guess this will be real impressive to you as well.

I'm quite aware, just didn't feel like specifying it was a Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle, you can still say ar-15 though since that is still the type of rifle the gun is, plenty of articles even just give that description of his gun.

Imagine what his police interview would be like had he survived, he would not be laughing like Martin Bryant.

I can't picture him in prison, he was just so odd I can't picture any other way than what he did: suicide.

ALSO especially since he killed 20 6 and 7 year olds, he wouldn't have fun in prison, probally the guards might even abuse him. Unless he got sent to a mental hospital which is probablly what he needed

Adam killed himself because by that point he had already saw a police officer in the building and by that point he knew that he had to commit suicide then.

I think he was afraid of being caught and going to prison. Many inmates would hate him for killing children

I'm sure that if the cops got to him before he could shoot himself, they would help him become an hero.

Come to think of it I'm not quite sure how the cops would react if Adam tried to surrender. They might actually beat him to death right then and there.

I think they would of shot him, they could use the excuse that he still had his gun on him and that he threatened to kill them.

They probably would have shot him many times if he was still alive.

His Rifle started to jam from rapid firing and he also heard police sirens from the distance so he thought there's no point of killing anymore and just ended himself, and he wasn't giving the cops any chance to capture him.
