HARTFORD, Conn. - Documents show the gunman in last year’s Connecticut school shooting wrote a violent book as a child that included passages in which a character shoots his mother in the head.

The homemade manuscript is titled “The Big Book of Granny” and was among items seized from Adam Lanza’s home. The documents were part of a report released Monday.

Lanza killed 20 young children and six educators with a rifle at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December. He fatally shot his mother in the head before driving to the school.

The documents say the main character in Lanza’s book has a gun in her cane and shoots people. There’s nothing to indicate Lanza ever handed the book in at school.

The son character sinks his mother to the bottom of the ocean with a “cement floatation device.” Another character likes hurting people, especially children.
