Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

27 People Dead, Mostly Children, at Connecticut School Shooting; Gunman Is Dead

More than two dozen people, mostly children, were shot and killed at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school this morning by a heavily armed man who was killed inside the building, federal and state sources tell ABC News.
"The shooter is deceased inside the building," Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance said at a news conference. "The public is not in danger."
Authorities said the school building is now secure.
LIVE UPDATES: Newtown, Conn., School Shooting
Sources described the shooter as a 24-year-old man armed with four weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest.
Authorities initially believed that there were two gunmen and were searching cars around the school. It is currently unclear whether there is still a suspect at large.
The massacre prompted the town of Newtown to lock down all its schools and draw SWAT teams to the school, authorities said today.
President Obama was briefed on the shooting by FBI Director Robert Mueller.
It's unclear how many people have been shot, but 27 people, mostly children, are dead, multiple federal and state sources tell ABC News. That number could rise, officials said.
It is the second worst mass shooting in U.S. history, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 when 32 were killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself. Today's carnage exceeds the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in which 13 died and 24 were injured.
The Newtown shooting comes three days after masked gunman Jacob Roberts opened fire in a busy Oregon mall, killing two before turning the gun on himself.
Today's shooting occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, which includes 450 students in grades K-4. The town is located about 12 miles east of Danbury.
State Police received the first 911 call at 9:41 a.m. and immediately began sending emergency units from the western part of the state. Initial 911 calls stated that multiple students were trapped in a classroom, possibly with a gunman, according to a Connecticut State Police source.
Vance said that on-duty and off-duty officers swarmed to the school and quickly checked "every door, every crack, every crevice" in the building looking for the gunman and evacuating children.
A photo from the scene shows a line of distressed children being led out of the school.
Three patients have been taken to Danbury Hospital, which is also on lockdown, according to the hospital's Facebook page.
"Out of abundance of caution and not because of any direct threat Danbury Hospital is under lockdown," the statement said. "This allows us simply to focus on the important work at hand."

Newtown Public School District secretary of superintendent Kathy June said in a statement that the district's schools were locked down because of the report of a shooting. "The district is taking preventive measures by putting all schools in lockdown until we ensure the safety of all students and staff," she said.
State police sent SWAT team units to Newtown.
All public and private schools in the town were on lockdown.
"We have increased our police presence at all Danbury Public Schools due to the events in Newtown. Pray for the victims," Newtown Mayor Boughton tweeted.
State emergency management officials said ambulances and other units were also en route and staging near the school.
A message on the school district website says that all afternoon kindergarten is cancelled today and there will be no midday bus runs.

It's seriously hard to believe that someone is that sadistic enough to do this.

Prayers to the families of the victims

This is appalling. I really don't know what else to say...

My thoughts go out to the families of the victims.

I brought this up in our Spanish class. We had a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting.

Very sad, now we get to hear all the BS about gun laws, etc. Because criminals always abide by the law.

Stuff like this really boils my blood. If there was a second gunman involved, I hope he gets what's coming to him.

This is really sad. For somebody to do that to children is just terrible. I don't really know what to say man.

WonderBoy is on a distinguished road

This shouldn't be broadcasted as much as it is. The guy is obviously mentally ill. They're just upsetting people and endangering / embarrassing the shooter's family by putting it all over the news like this. >_>

Modern media for you. Don't care about anything but viewer ratings. It's also why they've gotten so much wrong/inaccurate info about this whole thing as it is.

Notice how when these particular types of things happen, the media has no clue on what reality they want to create for us viewers.

Uh, what? This was a shooting on an elementary school! Do you think people are just going to twiddle their thumbs, go "ho-hum" and continue about their day in that community? Seriously?

The family of the shooter's family are victims of this, but I feel absolutely no remorse for the shooter at all, mentally stable or not. And in my opinion, while I said the shooter's family are victims of this, I feel like those who had lost loved ones during this deserve a lot more sympathy at the moment than that family.
