State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said four weapons were recovered from the school:
Multiple, 30-round high capacity magazines were also recovered for each of the handguns and the AR-15.
The AR-15 was "used in the school in its entirety," Vance said. One of the handguns were used for Lanza's suicide.

"It's a huge case," Connecticut state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said in a Sunday news conference. "Our goal is to paint a complete picture."
State police have interviewed many people, including two survivors, and still have other interviews to make. Those interviews may include children.
"We have to be sensitive," Lt. Vance said.
The bodies of some of the people killed have already been released to funeral directors.
Police were still tracking the four guns found at the school. They will be traced back to their origin and how they came into the possession of Adam Lanza.
Lt. Vance cautioned reporters that there is a lot of misinformation being spread on social media, as well as things of a threatening manner. Threats will be investigated and if needed "prosecution will take place", he said.
11:20 A.M. UPDATE: From the AP: " Connecticut's governor says the elementary school gunman committed suicide when he heard first responders coming. Gov.

Monroe Superintendent Jim Agostine wrote in a message to Monroe parents and staff.
NEWTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) -- President Obama will join the people of Newtown tonight at a vigil to remember the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
The interfaith vigil will be held at Newtown High School. Prior to that, the president will spend time with the families of the students and teachers, as well as the first responders who arrived at the school after the shooting.
Sunday, authorities released the names of the 12 girls, 8 boys and six adults killed at the school.
"Our wound is deep because we are a close knit community," Newtown First Selectwoman Patricia Llodra said Saturday. "We truly care for each other."
Other vigils are planned in cities and towns across the state.
Connecticut's Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Wayne Carver ruled all the deaths a homicide. "I believe everyone was hit more than once," Dr. Carver said. He said it was probably the worst thing he's ever seen.
State police said their investigation continues into the shooting, and evidence found at the home Nancy Lanza, the mother of the gunman, may help explain a motive. Nancy Lanza was killed before the shootings at the school.
Flags remain at half staff in honor of the victims.
For Newtown residents, a crisis intervention team has been made available for anyone who wants to talk about what happened. The number to call is 203-270-4283.
The United Way of Western Connecticut is collecting cash donations to help the families of the victims.
