UPDATE: Authorities refute reports on Newtown shooter's motive
Authorities in Connecticut are refuting reports that link the accused Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter to mass murderer Anders Breivik.
CBS quoted several law enforcement sources close to the investigation that said 20-year old Adam Lanza was inspired by Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway 2 summers ago.
The sources claimed that evidence shows that Lanza wanted to cause more death and destruction than Breivik did.
However, Connecticut State Police call that conclusion nothing but speculation and say it is 'in no way accurate.'
In July 2011, Breivik killed 8 people by bombing government buildings in downtown Oslo. He shot another 69 on an island housing a summer camp for teens.
Sources tell CBS News Adam Lanza zeroed in on Sandy Hook because it was the "easiest target" with the "largest cluster of people."
The CBS reports said that there evidence that Lanza was likely acting out a kind of game as he killed 20 1st graders & 6 adults at Sandy Hook, as if the deaths amounted to some kind of "score".
Police reportedly recovered a collection of violent video games from Lanza's home, where he was said to spend hours honing his virtual shooting skills.
Lanza got in some practice with the real thing, making multiple visits to local gun ranges with his mother.
