All the shootings he was aware of were committed with a rifle, Carver said.

“All the wounds that I know of at this point were caused by the long weapon,” Carver said.

This article was adjusted on December 4, 2013 to reflect documentary information made available to The Forward. The article originally reported that Noah Pozner was shot 11 times. We have since learned that the actual number is less than 11. In deference to the family’s wishes to keep the number private, we changed the text to read “multiple” gun shots.
