HOBOKEN -- As a crowd gets bigger on Friday afternoon in front of 13th and Grand streets in Hoboken, media reports are conflicting about the Newtown, Conn. school shooting on Friday morning and its connection to Hoboken.

On Friday, the suspect in the deadly school shooting was identified as Ryan Lanza. The Facebook page for a person with the same name said that he grew up in Newtown but lives in Hoboken. However, some reports are now saying that a close relative of Lanza may be the suspect, and he may have been carrying Ryan Lanza's ID.

This afternoon, police were searching a Hoboken residence and interviewing at least two roommates there. However, a police spokesman said that it was not definite which Lanza lived there, and that possibly a brother lived there.

Police also said that it is not true that a body was found at the residence. However, a media source said that at least one body may have been found elsewhere in Hoboken in connection with the tragedy. This could not be confirmed.

As there are many conflicting reports, the Hoboken Reporter is keeping on the story and will post updates. See the links below for numerous past updates, keep watching, and pick up the print edition this weekend.
