Shooter Adam Lanza, who killed 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school, and his mom visited a shooting range before Friday’s tragic events, the Associated Press reports, citing the ATF.

The agency declined to identify the shooting range or give more specifics

What’s clear, according to the ATF and AP, is that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, practiced firing her weapon at a shooting range several times.

Investigators are trying to determine whether her son ever fired a weapon there.

The AP said Lanza shot his mom four times in the head before unloading his gun at the elementary school.

2 Jurors Dismissed in Gotti Trial; His Mother Yells “They’re Railroading You”

As expected, the New York racketeering trial of mobster John Gotti Jr. has been flush with drama.

On Wednesday, after the judge dismissed two jurors who weren’t getting along, Gotti’s mother loudly voiced her opinion from the gallery, not far from where her son sat.

“They’re railroading you!” Victoria Gotti shouted, according to the Associated Press. “They’re doing to you what they did to your father.”

Meanwhile, Gotti’s attorneys on Wednesday won a victory when the judge ruled that the jury can hear evidence  contained in an FBI report that a top mobster approved killing Gotti after he said he had quit the mob.  The paper reported that the evidence could bolster Gotti’s claim that he quit the mob in 1999.
