NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — A friend of the mother of the man who killed 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school says guns were simply a hobby for her.

John Bergquist told NBC’s “Today” show on Monday that Nancy Lanza loved the arts and culture and that shooting was one of her hobbies, and that she was not a survivalist.

Nancy Lanza was found dead in her bed on Friday, shot four times in the head with a .22-caliber rifle.

Another friend, Ellen Adriani, told the “Today” show that Lanza was a devoted mother.

She says Nancy Lanza always made herself available to Adam and his needs. She says he came first with his mother.
