It depends on the circumstances. In high stress situations eyewitness testimony of an event is very often inaccurate. This is well known in psychology and law.
Google high stress false memory eyewitness testimony or take a look at the following link for some examples.

It is better to wait and see how the story develops after something like this because you should expect the initial reports to be in accurate. There are so many news agencies reporting on bad initial information why would you expect it to be accurate in the very beginning. This always happens in situations like this.
of course it is good to question things that don't seem right up front. I do wonder why you and Don and others seem to automatically believe what you see from websites and random youtube videos that challenge any official report or story. I find much more to question in the opposing views usually and I usually try to fact check things. Even with mainstream news.

I am wondering why anyone would want to fake or falsify or scapegoat someone for the massacre of so many children and teachers. If it is to direct attention away from who really is responsible then the question is what purpose would the killings serve in the first place. I find it much more likely that if there is any conspiracy it lies with those who want to muddy the waters and direct attention away from any discussion on gun control or what should be done to prevent something like this from happening. considering that most of the websites that are flooding the web with these conspiracy theories tend to be right wing blogs I would say they have the most to gain from spreading misinformation and distracting people from the gun control discussions. I am not making a statement on what I think about gun control, I am just weighing who benefits the most by providing misinformation.
