Connecticut school shooting: 18 children among 27 dead

'Close to 20' dead in Connecticut school shooting, source says
Newtown, Connecticut (CNN) -- Nearly 20 people died Friday in an elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.

At least 10 of the dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School were children, the source said. At a news conference Friday afternoon, state police Lt. Paul Vance would say only that there had been "several fatalities."

The school was secure, and the public was not in danger, Vance said.

"Why? Why?" one woman wailed as she walked up a wooded roadway leading from the school.

A parent who was inside the school at the time of the attack said she heard what sounded like at least 100 rounds being fired. She said she saw two school employees who had died.

Hospital officials in neighboring Danbury said they were treating three people wounded in the shooting. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said the victims were in "very serious" condition.

The shooter is dead, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN's Susan Candiotti. The suspect's body is in a classroom at the school, the source said.

A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said a male was being questioned but he is not being called a suspect.

Federal officers in tactical gear were on the scene, coordinating with local and state police. At least four ambulances remained at the school Friday afternoon.

Police have recovered two weapons from the suspect, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, the source said. It's unclear if police killed the suspect.

'It doesn't seem possible' -- parents shocked by school shooting

Police and teachers rushed students from the building as police swarmed the area shortly after the first calls came in, around 9:40 a.m. ET. Officials moved students to a nearby firehouse, where parents frantically sought information about their children.

Third-grader Alexis Wasik said police and teachers barged into her classroom and told students to hide in the corner.

"Everybody was crying," she said. "And I just heard the police officers yelling."

Aerial images from CNN affiliate News 12 New Jersey showed police officers armed with rifles following a dog into woods near the school.

Other officers, some in tactical gear, stood around the school with guns drawn, CNN affiliate WFSB reported.

All schools in the city were on lockdown Friday as police assessed the situation, Vance said.

Gov. Dan Malloy is "horrified" by what happened, a spokesman said.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration feels "enormous sympathy" for affected families and pledged federal support for state and local law enforcement.

Newtown is about 60 miles north of New York.

Exactly. The only true form of gun control is to controlled shoot a gun at the person who is misusing one.

We are going to have to turn our schools into prisons.


When I went to my daughter's Christmas concert I wondered for a moment what would happen if someone went nuts. I live in a very safe part of the country, but nobody would have been equipped to stop a madman in that situation.

Fox news now saying the shooter was a parent of one of the kids. Unconfirmed.

Edited to add - the shooter was 20 years old. The math for him being a parent doesn't work for me.

Teachers wanna bang students, they don't wanna kill them. Everyone who shot up a school was some poor **** who didn't realize life could/would get better. Teachers have all gotten past that angsty emo shit by now. "What's preventing a teacher from doing this now" Nothing but reality, sir.

Certify, train and arm teachers now!!!!
I'm all for gun rights, but the idea of arming teachers scares me more then the odds of this happening at my kids school.

Teachers are educated, they should be trained properly.

Shots heard, classroom locked... Kids hide away from windows away from the line of fire.
Teacher pulls weapon and waits... Mass killer opens door and 15 rounds whiz by his head, one possibly hitting, maybe more if trained properly, Problem solved, many lives saved.

I'm trying to picture my old teachers trying to shoot down a gunman. It's a funny image.

One of the secretarys from our local school took the CCL class with me, and she asked why she couldn't take a gun into the school to protect the students.

She is the kind of person that would be dangerous with a rubber band. I definately don't want her having a gun in her desk.

If the classroom door is locked, the shooter shouldn't be opening the door.
