UPDATE: 27 people have been reported dead. Most of them children.
Devastating beyond belief!
Authorities are now reporting that close to 20 people have died in a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
At least 10 of the victims were just children.
A witness reports:
“Three people went out into the hall and only one person came back, the vice principal, she said, who was shot in the leg or the foot, who came crawling back."
She adds that there "must have been a hundred rounds."
We're told this could officially be the largest school shooting in America's history. Just horrible.
Our hearts go out to the victim's families and loved ones durning this tragic time.
We'll get you more information as it's released.
