Police in Connecticut have warned members of the media to beware of hoaxers on the internet who are posting false information about Friday's school shooting.

Lt Paul Vance told a news conference that prosecutions would take place once those responsible had been indentified.

Twenty children and six women died in Friday's assault on Sandy Hook school by a lone gunman who then turned his weapon on himself.
