ILLINOIS -  Adam Lanza's aunt told reporters outside of her Illinois home that the alleged gunman in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings was a "different" and "quiet" child.

She also said that he was a "nice, good kid," but a "challenge" to his family.

The aunt remarked that Lanza was never in trouble with the law.

Police say that Adam Lanza was found dead in a classroom after going on a killing spree of Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday.

Twenty children and six adults were killed at the school, and Lanza's mother, Nancy, was found dead in the home she shared with the suspect.
