Officials reported that they even have search warrants and are analyzing every piece of evidence related to the shooting.

In the meantime, Chalk Hill Elementary School in nearby Monroe will be used for students of Sandy Hook Elementary School, police announced today.

The Chalk Hill school was mothballed and has not been in use because of a dip in the local population. Local contractors are volunteering their time to prepare the school for the displaced Newtown students.
