DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - A spokesman for Western Connecticut State University says the man identified as the gunman who killed 26 children and adults in an elementary school took college classes when he was only 16.
Paul Steinmetz, spokesman for the Danbury school, confirmed Monday that Adam Lanza earned a 3.26 grade point average while a student there. He dropped out of a German language class and withdrew from a computer science class, but earned an A in a computer class, A-minus in American history and B in macroeconomics.
Steinmetz says Lanza was among a small group of 16-year-olds among the school's 5,000 undergraduates.
The Hartford Courant and The Wall Street Journal first reported Lanza's academic record at Western Connecticut State.
Steinmetz says Lanza took his last class in the summer of 2009 and didn't return.
