New details about gunman Adam Lanza emerged as Newtown wrapped up a wrenching week of farewells, with funerals scheduled Saturday for three more of the 20 slain children at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
High school classmates recalled that Lanza was the awkward kid who wore the same clothes to school every day. Lanza would walk through the hallways, awkwardly pressing himself against the wall while wearing the same green shirt and khaki pants every day. "As long as I knew him, he never really spoke,'' said Daniel Frost, who took a computer class with Lanza and remembered his skill with electronics. Lanza could take apart and reassemble a computer in a matter of minutes.
Lanza seemed to spend most of his time in the basement of the home he shared with his mother, who kept a collection of guns there, said Russell Ford, a friend of Nancy Lanza's who had done chimney and pipe work on the house. The basement of the Lanza home had a computer, flat-screen TV, couches and an elaborate setup for video games. Nancy Lanza kept her guns in what appeared to be a secure case in another part of the basement, said Ford.
Back in high school, Frost recalled that Lanza "seemed pretty interested" playing Counter-Strike — a video game in which players compete against each other as either terrorists or counter-terrorists.
