    Shooting reported at Connecticut school — RT

    Authorities are investigating what is being described as a school shooting early Friday in the town of Newton, Connecticut.

    Preliminary reports suggest as many as two gunmen opened fire at around 9:40 a.m. at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One of the suspected shooters has been reported dead, while another remains at large. The police confirmed the shooting to BNO News shortly after, though other details have yet to be verified.

    The Hartford Courant cites an unnamed police official who confirmed that at least one person has suffered several gunshot wounds. The Newton Bee is reporting multiple injuries.

    The school has since been flanked by dozens of state troopers, who are assisting local officers dispatched to the scene.

    All schools in Newton, CT have been placed on lockdown following orders from the superintendent, and the police are on the scene now attempting to determine the extent of the incident.

    According to Nearbyhoods.com, Sandy Hook normally holds around 625 students in grades kindergarten through fourth. Roughly 40 teachers are employed there, the site claims.

    Details are still emerging.

    Jeeze... It'll be a miracle if we don't see national gun control measures in the next year or two.

    I hope all the innocent folks there are OK.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Live stream just mentioned seeing one suspect in custody. Two guns taken off of dead suspect. Some victims are children. There are bodies in the school.

    This is happening down the street from me. My daughter is safe, at a neighboring school.

    The gunman is dead, there is another rumored to be at large. The police turnout is incredible.
    I am not allowed to pick up my daughter until the lockdown is over (neighboring schools/school districts were all locked down.)

    If you're in the habit, please pray for the people involved.

    If so, then we'll probably just see more of this:

    There are no amount of laws that will stop these kinds of events from happening. Take guns away they'll just drive cars into buildings, or make a bomb, or stab people, or poison them, etc. Lots of ways to hurt and kill people without firearms. All we can hope for is more people who are armed and willing to help stop the bloodshed or at least transfer it to the bad people.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

    Good news. I hope your daughter is not too traumatized and they catch that other perp before he hurts anyone else.
