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.

He'll be infamous because he's the brother of a mass murderer of elementary school kids. I doubt anyone will remember he was accidentally named as the killer a month from now.

Sigh...yeah, America doesn't have a problem with gun violence at all, right? It's amazing how gun advocates even manage to keep up the argument that these things promote safety with all the shit that goes on in this country like this.

If it were a criminal prosecution maybe, but if it's civil that standard may not be so strict. He's got a solid negligence claim here and more importantly CNN still has not corrected it's story even after other outlets have reported.

He'll get paid, the only question is how much.

Yes, you are utterly clueless if you think they should cut away from this story to cover a christmas tree lighting or some stupid shit like that.

I'm not sure how "accidental" makes it any better.

This isn't the first time that a media organization has gotten something horribly wrong in a desperate attempt to be first with a report. In my opinion, news shops need to reevaluate their priorities. Society would benefit more from information that emerged 10 minutes later and was accurate compared to really fast, really wrong news.

They may have done nothing "illegal" or even anything that would warrant civil recourse, but they sure as heck need to start double-checking their sources and information before they run with a story. More blatant irresponsibility and sloppiness among news outlets doesn't help anybody.

No he won't. If he's remembered at all, it will be that he was INCORRECTLY briefly named as the shooter. Geez, not every mistake entitles one to a jackpot lawsuit.

Pretty slippery slope there. If you adopted that kind of philosophy, "beat writers" would all be out of a job.
