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.

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.

The truth should never be punished as a crime.

whatever, I don't even care

I'm just saying that if the root of the problem is really these psychos wanting to one up each other before they off themselves...seems pretty simple to me. Don't let news outlets release their names.

If muzzling the press offends you then whatever, like everyone already said it won't happen but if that would stop 50% of these stupid crimes from happening sign me up.

So how do we measure how many of these stupid crimes don't happen after we implement your brilliant plan?

Your heart is in the right place, but taking away freedom is the last thing that needs to be done.


I just wish the media would exercise a little restraint........ya right.

not sure what you're asking

but did we really need to know the name of the person who committed this terrible crime?

do you feel better now that you know his name?

You said that you'd be on board with muzzling the press if it would prevent 50% of these crimes. How would you count crimes that don't happen?

Yeah, I have no problem with freedom of press...whatever. I'm not even trying to get into that debate.

I'm just saying...if the President did muzzle the press and say "yo bros! no more releasing names of these awful murderers...you hear?"

I'm pretty sure none of us would end up caring that we never knew the Adam Lansky's (or whatever the shit his name was) of the world...

know his name or not, the crime still happened...and the last thing we want is for this dipshit to get a copycat from another dipshit...if this "famous" aspect is really getting these monster's off...put an end to it

I still don't get the question.

They can report the crimes all they want, just leave the name of the murderer out of the news. And picture. And personal details. And life story.

I'm saying...

HYPOTHETICALLY

if 10 school shootings were to occur in the next 10 years with each murderer knowing he'd become the hot topic for an entire week and get his name all over the country....

if leaving the name out of the news prevented 5 out of the 10 from happening (or even 1 really)

then sign me up

**** your freedom! I'd rather not see 18 kindergarteners die for no reason ever again

I'd want the president out of office immediately.

Your idea is more dangerous than people who shoot up schools.
