Photo Of Suspected Sandy Hook Shooter

The 2005 image of Adam Lanza was published by ABC Friday.

Lanza is about 13 in the photo — three to eight years older than the 20 children he’s suspected of killing in Newtown, Connecticut.

NOTE: BuzzFeed earlier posted a photograph of Adam Lanza’s brother, Ryan Lanza, whom authorities had incorrectly identified as the suspect in the shooting. Ryan Lanza is not now thought to have been the shooter, and law enforcement authorities have said they confused the two brothers’ names in early statements to CNN and other outlets on whom our item relied. Authorities now say they confused the brothers because Ryan Lanza’s identification was found on Adam Lanza’s body.
