CT School Elementary Shooting: The Scene Is Now Secure

We can't even begin to understand why something like this would happen.

In a press conference regarding the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School Lt. Paul Vance of the CT state police released a very small piece of good news for the citizens of Newtown, CT:

The scene is now secure. The public is not in danger."

However, though several reports are alleging close to 30 fatalities have been counted, Vance did not confirm how many people have been killed, but said:

"There were several fatalities at the scene. The shooter is dead inside the building."

A few sources are reporting that the shooter was a 20-year-old man with ties to the schools:

"The official said that a gun used in the attacks is a .223-caliber rifle. The official also said that New Jersey state police are searching a location in that state in connection with the shootings, said by an official in Connecticut to have left 27 dead, including 18 children."

Will continue to keep you updated as new reports are released.

We can not imagine the tragedy the parents and family members of the victims are feeling. We give them our deepest sympathy.

    This isn't the time to voice your political views, it's insensitive right now, this is the result of a pshychotic individual(or individuals). Not an opportunity or evidence to back up your irrelevant opinions.
    I'm absolutely shocked by it all and all that can be said is my deepest prayers and sympathies are with all involved.

    I live near Newtown, CT. They have put many schools around the area under lock-down and grief counselors are being brought in to help the children and parents. This is absolutely horrible.

    Re: boston61

    Blaming republicans is asinine. The one to blame is that sick individual. It seems when these school shootings occur everyone jumps in with their uneducated 2 cents and blames everyone and everything but the shooter. Schools are gun free zones mandated by law by the federal government. I guess the shooter never got that memo and that piece of gun control really works doesn't it? Anyone who thinks or believes a piece of law will hinder or deter a criminal, mentally ill, or insane individual really doesn't live in reality. An armed and trained teacher or staff member could have limited this tragedy but we do live in a coward society where immediate reaction is frown upon. Instead, we're suppose to hunker down and wait for the police while the shooter continue on their rampage.

    Re: MacTX – the monster was armed, what could the teachers do? Nobody could limit the number of fatalities. God bless them all, poor innocent children. So sad.

    Re: Elena76 – Wrong, a Metal detector and guards at the entrance, could have. Sadly, the good old USA is such a mentally fucked up place in this world, that metal detectors and armed guards are necessary at the entrance of every public building in the USA. If you people don't make that happen, these types of things will continue to happen again, and again, and again, and again, and again. They should be as common as bank machines down there.

    Also, burn your constitution. Just burn it.

    Re: MB

    Metal detectors everywhere is called a police state. I don't live in a prison and I wouldn't want to. Police state and prisons don't guarantee your safety, nothing does. Even prisoners can be killed while under the care and watchful eye of their government.

    If you don't believe in the US Constitution, you're either a foreigner, corrupt politician, our President, or someone who needs to relinquish their US Citizenship and kicked out of the country. You don't deserve to be here if you don't believe in that document. Countless people have sacrifice and died to give you those rights that you so easily toss aside.

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

    boston61-you are wrong, republicans do not assist crazy people to get guns. if anything it is the guy you voted for does since he gives everything to you. you guys have money left over to buy guns. as a republican and knowing a lot of republicans, none of us own guns…..plus the gun he used was his moms.

    did the school call the teacher lanza to see why she didn't show up at school? or did they find out only after the kid started shooting the children at school
    and when did they discover when he shot his mother -

    Re: boston61 – You're a moron. Having 2 10rd magazines is no different than a 20rd extended magazine. You can buy and have more than one standard size magazine. You can also reload them very quickly.
