It does not appear that Nancy Lanza, mother of the apparent shooter at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, was a staff member at the school, despite earlier reports.

Newtown Supt. Janet Robinson told NBC Connecticut’s Jo Ling Kent on Saturday that there is no record of Lanza in the school database.

"Mrs. Lanza, who I have never met, was not a teacher in the district," Robinson said. "She's not in our database as a staff member."

She might have been a substitute teacher or volunteer at the school, but that is not clear.

Federal authorities have identified Adam Lanza, 20, as the man who shot and killed 20 school children, six adults, and himself.

The guns recovered at the scene, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, were legally registered to Nancy Lanza.
