Default Shooting at an Elementary School in Connecticut [28 dead/20 children]

Quote:
NEWTON, CONN. - A lone gunman at the center of a terrifying Friday morning elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., has been killed, authorities say.

The Hartford Courant reported that shortly after 9:40 a.m., the shooter was in the main office at Sandy Hook Elementary School and at least one victim had numerous gunshot wounds. Two handguns were recovered from the scene.

Mayor Mark Boughton said several victims had been taken to local hospitals. But details were sketchy. The Newtown Bee reported that a police officer carried a seriously wounded child from the building. (The Courant also said one shooter was reported dead).

Groups of students some crying, some holding hands were being escorted away from the school by their teachers. Some students were still in the school at 10:30 a.m., after it was placed on lock down, parents said.

The school is in a residential, wooded neighborhood about 90 minutes north of New York City. It has has 39 teachers and about 650 students. A reverse 911 call went out to parents warning of an incident. Parents were being reunited with children. But, NBC Connecticut reported, police are searching the area behind the school with guns drawn.

Alexis Wasik, a third-grader at the school, said police were checking everybody inside the school before they were escorted to the firehouse.

"We had to walk with a partner," said Wasik, 8. One child leaving the school said that there was shattered glass everywhere. A police officer ran into the classroom and told them to run outside and keep going until the reach the firehouse, The Courant reported.

Dozens of state troopers are on the scene assisting local police. Heavily armed police gathered in front of the school around 10:45 a.m., and a number of stretchers were set up

The school superintendent's office says the district has locked down schools as a preventive measure to ensure the safety of students and staff. State police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance says they have a number of personnel on the scene to assist.

A 1:30 press conference has been scheduled.

This is just ridiculous. There is nothing worse than thinking your child might be dead and you don't know. So many shootings nowadays too.

Watching the CNN report right now and they're discussing how some children have injuries to the hand, face and other parts.

Its crazy schools are becoming the most dangerous places in the US. Newtown is only a couple towns over from me. My prayers go out to all who were affected.

I'm about 40 minutes out too. One of the guys I work with has a son who's a Newtown cop. He's been one the phone all morning trying to get a hold of him. There was a report that a cop had been hit too at first, but I guess they rescinded it.
