Arsenal of weapons found in Newtown gunman's home

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Warrants released in the investigation of the Newtown school shooting reveal that an arsenal of weapons including guns, a gun safe with shotgun shells, a bayonet and several swords were found in the home of the gunman.

Investigators also found articles on other shootings and a holiday card containing a check made out to Adam Lanza for the purchase of a firearm, authored by his mother, Nancy Lanza. And investigators found books about living with autism and Asperger's syndrome, as well as an NRA guide to pistol shooting.

Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother inside their Newtown home on Dec. 14 before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School and killing 26 people, including 20 first-graders. He killed himself as police arrived.
