CT shooting suspect had ties to New Hampshire
KINGSTON, N.H. (WHDH) -- Newtown, Connecticut gunman, Adam Lanza once lived in Kingston, New Hampshire.
Kingston's police chief told 7News the FBI was conducting an investigation at a home owned by 50-year-old James Champion, school shooter Adam Lanza's uncle.
A neighbor told 7News he's a retired Kingston police officer who's now a sheriff's deputy -- a Rockingham County sheriff's vehicle sat in the driveway.
7News saw a couple standing with an officer near the house waiting out in the cold for quite some time -- apparently as a search was taking place inside.
New Hampshire State Police were also on the scene.
According to town records and published reports, Nancy Lanza owned a home next door to the Champion home on Depot Road in Kingston, New Hampshire.
Her maiden name was Champion. Reports say she inherited the piece of land and may still own the house, where 7News believes Adam Lanza lived until age six when the family moved to Connecticut in 1998.
7News confirmed another of Adam Lanza’s uncle lives in Plaistow, New Hampshire -- he's Adam's father's brother.
7News found an empty police SUV, its engine running, at the end of the driveway and an officer met 7News at the front door rather than the Lanza’s.
“They're not going to be making any comments they're still trying to wrap themselves around this,” said an unidentified officer.
Just as in Newtown, Connecticut, the people in Kingston, New Hampshire are devastated and in shock.
