    Listen to the video. You'll hear them talking about the shooting "earlier this week." I believe that clip was from 12/15.

    That clip keeps getting recycled, passed off as an update. That was still part of initial reporting.

    The best information I have (not confirmed/official at all) is that the AR was used, a shotgun (Saiga) is what was left in the trunk.

    Closest I've heard to it not being a "high-powered assault weapon," was that the Bushmaster had a .22LR conversion in it, which might make the fact that one kid had been shot 11 times seem to make a little more "sense," if that word can be applied to this incident at all.

    The conneticut state police web page states that a Sig 9mm, a glock 10mm and a bushmaster .223 AR were recovered from inside the school. An AK style shotgun (Izhmash Canta-12 12 gauge Shotgun) was recovered from the car.

    The fact that the police listed the shotgun as a "Canta-12" leads me to believe that all they did was report exactly what was written on the side of the weapon, since pretty much everyone in the USA who has ever heard of that weapon refers to it as the Saiga-12, which is how "canta" (cyrillic) is pronounced phonetically. I wouldn't put it past them to have merely reported that the Bushmaster was a .223, simply because the side of the receiver was marked ".223" rather than mentioning the .22LR conversion, since that wouldn't exactly support the "high power" claim the anti-gun people like to claim of "assault weapons."
