yeah - Now they’re saying Ryan had nothing to do with it, that Adam was the lone shooter and was autistic with a personality disorder

pretty shitty press corps if you ask me - at least name the right guy
Of course the media posted the Facebook profile of the 24 year old brother as the shooter

Reporters and producers around the country, frantically searching for information online about the alleged school shooter and found what seemed like a match. Ryan Lanza, 24, was believed responsible for the deaths of 27 people in Newtown, Conn., at the Sandy Hook elementary school.

The Facebook profile showed a Ryan Lanza from Newtown, Conn., who currently lives in Hoboken, N.J., and is a male who looks like he’s in his 20s. It fits the police description, so countless news orgs ran with it in stories and tweets.

Problem is, it seems to be the wrong guy.
