Investigators say the gun used in the firefighter ambush in Webster is the same type of semi-automatic rifle used in the Sandy Hook School shooting.

Adam Lanza also used a .223-caliber Bushmaster to gun down 20 children and six teachers at the elementary school in Connecticut.

At an event yesterday, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said, among other things, popular video games could be contributing to the violence and interest in these types of guns.
