Connecticut school shooting: This is probably the wrong Ryan Lanza

Dec 14, 2012

The shooter in the Connecticut school shooting this morning has been identified as Ryan Lanza, who was killed at the scene of his mass murder in Newtown.

Immediately after the name was released to news media, the internet defined this Ryan Lanza whose Facebook page lists him as being from Hoboken, NJ and Newtown, CT. But this appears to be the wrong Ryan Lanza.

After the Facebook page went viral, status updates were posted from the account, presumably meaning that this particular Ryan Lanza is still very much alive—he says he was at work when the Newtown incident occurred.

The status updates have since gone viral on Twitter, hopefully enough so that the innocent Ryan Lanza will keep safe from any ill-conceived attempts at retribution. See status updates below—help spread the word to keep this guy safe until we know more. Status update image via The Daily’s Twitter.

[Update: The shooter has been identified as Adam Lanza. His brother Ryan Lanza (not the Lanza listed here) is being questioned in connection to the crime.]
