Newtown Report Fails To Determine Shooting Motive

The prosecutor who led the investigation into the Newtown school shooting says it did not determine a motive for the attack.

State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III says there is also no clear indication why he chose Sandy Hook Elementary School as the target for his rampage other than the fact that it was close to his home.

He said the gunman, Adam Lanza, had significant mental health issues that affected his ability to live a normal life and interact with others but did not affect his mental state for the crimes.

He said police went into the school within minutes of the first shots being fired and that along with the actions of teachers inside saved many children's lives.
