NEW YORK: The father of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza says in his first public comments about the massacre that what his son did couldn't "get any more evil" and he wishes his son hadn't been born.
Peter Lanza also tells The New Yorker magazine (http://nyr.kr/1qo2pBK ) that he believes his son would have killed him if he had the chance.
He said he hadn't seen his son in two years when Adam killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December 2012. Adam killed himself as police arrived. He also fatally shot his mother, Nancy, in their Newtown home before going to the school. Peter and Nancy Lanza were divorced.
Peter Lanza said he also believed his son could have been schizophrenic.
