MASSIVE Elementary School Shooting in CT *12-24 Maybe be dead

I live in Massachusetts, and the reports were three injured, and the gunmen and principal dead. It happened at 9:41am when a 19-25 year old ended the school.

It just got worse.

ABC was reporting 12 dead, CBS is reporting AT LEAST 12 CHILDREN dead then another 12 adults killed.

A news conference will come in about 15 minutes.

Maybe two gunmen... AT LEAST 27 dead.

http://gma.yahoo.com/breaking-conn-s...opstories.html

This is the very latest...

At 9:30 this morning a 20 year old went into the school and started shooting. A few of the gunshots went over the loud speaker, and the school went into lock down. The gunman seems to be targeting his mother. She was killed while teaching her kindergarten class. 18 students and 6 adults died in the school. Two students and an adult were taken to a local hospital. There two of the students died, the adult will be physically OK.

There was only one gunman and he is dead.

There is a secondary related crime scene in town, one adult dead. It's rumoured to be the shooters dad. That's unconfirmed.

To clear things up...
Only one shooter.
He was never in NJ, he lived in CT.
He was 20, and not 24.
The shooter's name is Adam, not Kyle. Kyle is his brother. I just want to make clear we don't accuse the wrong person. However giving a name to this scumbag would make him seem human. I will just call him "shooter".

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by the Connecticut tragedy. It's almost like we can't even go outside without worrying if we're going to be shot or not and that really sucks. I'm angry by this, and I'm starting to think maybe we do need a lot tougher gun control laws. When do Isolated incidents no longer become isolated? This is just really sad and really crappy.

It's 26 dead. 18 kids, 8 adults. An entire fucking classroom.

ETA- I don't normally swear like that outside TNZ, but I am just too angry to be polite right now.

So shocking and tragic. My prayers and thoughts are with the victims' families.

Yeah, the death numbers came in quickly around the time I posted this. The numbers are still unconfirmed because they have to tell families and such. They just had a short briefing.

NO gunman on the run, it's safe.

Gunman is dead - looks like it might have been a father of one of the students, a 20 year old New Jersey man. They captured a second guy hiding out in the woods near the school.

Don't want to make light of this horrible situation, but maybe the Mayan Calendar Crazies are coming out to play one more time before they think the end comes - nothing to lose, and all that. It honestly won't surprise me if we see more of this in the coming week.

We'll find out about that. And I don't think you're making light, but trying to quickly (and maybe too quickly?) to explain this madness. There are enough uncontrolled people out there who are also unstable that your scenario could have credence, even if not in this case.

This is just horrible.

Now the newspeople are asking, between these and the prior shooting, "What is going on?"
