Default Shooting at a elementary school

Wow, what a sick world we live in sometimes!!

Happen in Connecticut this morning, so far 27 dead, 18 of those are CHILDREN.



Quote:
A shooting involving two gunmen erupted at a Connecticut elementary school this morning, prompting the town of Newtown to lock down all of its schools and draw SWAT teams to the school, authorities said today.

State Police confirm that one shooter is dead. A second gunman is apparently at large, sources told ABC News.

The shooting occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, 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.
1:09 p.m.: Twenty-seven people, or more, most of them children killed in shooting, sources tell ABC News.



Prayers with the victims and their family. KIDS, wow. Just sad.

Incredibly sad news story.

Perhaps one day, gun laws will be changed.

300mil guns in circulation in the US, how anyone can be shocked whenever this happens I'll never understand. Watch CNN tonight and you'll see someone on there defending their gun laws or lack thereof. What a nutty country!

The killer is a 20 year old or around that age. His mom was a teacher at the school, he killed his mom at her home before going to the school and killing students of his mom.

wow.

EDIT: Another report saying he killed his dad at home, and then went to the school to kill his mom and others.

Exclamation Over 27 dead in Connecticut elementary school shooting.

Quote:
A horrific shooting at a Connecticut elementary school Friday has left as many as 27 people dead, including 18 children, the Associated Press reports.
CBS News says 26 people have died. Other news outlets put the death toll at 20. If those numbers are confirmed, it would mark one of the worst mass school shootings in U.S. history, behind the Virginia Tech university massacre in 2007, which left 32 dead.
Police in the town of Newtown, Conn, a quiet town about an hourís drive north of New York City, were alerted to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School around 9:40 a.m. ET. They contacted Connecticut State Police and surrounding police departments. A SWAT team was among the throngs of police to respond and enter the building.

Twitter is exploding with people circulating photos of an individual named Ryan Lanza. The one being circulated is not the right guy as he's being targeted by some vitriol now.

We, as a society, need to begin asking so many questions of ourselves. I wouldn't even know where to begin....

The last day before many of the schools shut down (at least the ones I know).....what fuels that much hate?

I don't think the picture circulating is of the right dude. I think he just shares the same name as the shooter. Unfortunate if true.

My thoughts exactly.

Also disgusted by reporters interviewing little kids after what just happened.

Obama cried during his statement. Maybe some action happens now. The really sickening thing is that a huge amount of money will be spent to oppose any action.

Wow. News sources inaccurately identified a different person who shared the same name as the shooter. His picture is all over the web. 20,000 posts of his picture. Poor guy.
