The Associated Press reports that David Matusiewicz is is custody on a “federal probation technicality.” The gunman’s name has not been released by authorities, but police have confirmed the shooter is dead. reports that the shooter was Thomas Matusiewicz. While that has not been confirmed by police, it appears that initial media reports IDing his son, David Matusiewicz, as the killer were incorrect.
