Officials say this is the weapon used in the ambush in Webster — a 233 caliber semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle.

It’s the same make and caliber gun Adam Lanza used to gun down children and teachers at an elementary school in Connecticut.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said today at a Christmas event that among other things, popular games could be contributing to the violence.

Police believe the two firefighters were killed by rounds from the Bushmaster rifle, but the investigation is still on going.
