WABC: One dead in school shooting in Newtown, CT





NEWTOWN, CT (KTRK) -- At least one person, believed to be the gunman, is dead and another wounded in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, WABC-TV in New York is reporting. Police report that the school is now cleared of shooters, but they are still treating it as an active shooter situation and all schools in the district remain locked down.

The school superintendent's office says the district has locked down schools to ensure the safety of students and staff.

The shooting was reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, in western Connecticut. State police say Newtown police called them at about 9:40 a.m. about the reports.

The Newtown Bee newspaper posted a photo of a group of young students -- some crying, others looking visibly frightened -- being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other's shoulders.

State police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance says they have a number of personnel on the scene to assist.

News Dude: "Parents, stay by the phones and away from the school"
& a few sentences later, "Our crews are on the way to the school!"

One dead, & that's the shooter. Does that mean suicide, or someone
who was in the school shot him/her/it?

Not enough info to wade in on a gun debate at this point in my opinion.

Looking at the aerial map, it sure doesn't look like many kids are walking
to that school.

Weird numbers for an Elementary school. That implies that 13 of the victims are adults.

Does this mean that the adults came from everywhere to put themselves between the
children and the shooter, or a Christmas (Holiday, Winter, Festivus, whatever) concert
was taking place?

Still not enough info & too much confusion to wade in with an informed opinion yet, In my
opinion. An ugly situation all around though, & the radio is claiming it's 18 children out of the
still current total of 27.

They claim 2 shooters or more.. everything still fuzzy.

The Gunmen walked into the office to start shooting.. think they targeted the adults first.

I wonder if this is domestic terrorism or are the shooters foreign nationals?? Meaning this could be a new type of terrorism.

Whatever the situation, this is very sad.. glad they killed one gunman, I hear they captured another..

Regardles of their race, nationality, religion or politics I think this would qualify as a form of terrorism. If this doesnt instill terror in people I dont know what will.

Yes agreed, however if this is an act of terrorism that was formulated from al-Qaeda (external - login to view) or something like that.. other schools could be targets..

Reminds me of the Beslan school hostage crisis (external - login to view)... carried out by fanatics

Initial reports were that the shooter was the father of one of the students.

You have a sick society with easy access to firearms.

I am actually starting to believe that the increasing amounts of these incidents is indirect correlation with this Mayan calendar end of the world nonsense.

Where these idiots are trying to get their minute of fame and historical recognition.

There may even be some belief that they are actually doing some sort of religious cleansing of society before the great rapture

There's no way to even remotely understand anyone who could do such an evil thing.

A 20 year old is what I'm seeing in various places, with "ties" to the school. My guess, and it's just a guess, is a former student.

NO, we just have more people than 50 years ago so things just seem worse because the frequency increased accordingly.


And then there is the media...


A wild west shoot out with deputies in a high speed horse back persuit ending with a roll over at Mill Crick would look hilarious if done with news teams in helicopters, graphics, google earth, and terrorist scenarios.

Humanity: proportionately killing each other at a relatively consistent rate since the dawn of time.

We've just gotten a bit more efficient with it over the years.

Given their history I doubt they'd do something like this. They like much bigger targets that are important. Not saying these kids arent important, but it makes no sense to hit an elementary school.

I liked Steven Pinker's book on the subject. So many people think the world is getting worse and worse but there isnt really any evidence for it. In absolute numbers more people are killed now but as a percentage of the population its declining. This world is a huge improvement over the 20th century.

No, sadly and very unfortunately, that seems to be the territory of the lone nutcase.

I always liked that Socrates or Plato quote, something about "kids these days" and how horrible they are in comparison to their parents generation. Very telling in how the more things change the more they stay the same.

In your opinion. Either way, that's irrelevant as to the accuracy of his comments.

Ryan Lanza the shooter killed his mother before he went to the school.. new number is 20 children dead. 27 total.

The innocent of the innocent being killed by an animal...



These images were found on the Facebook profile of one Ryan Lanza from Newton, Connecticut, currently living in Hoboken, New Jersey (where a crime scene is being investigated in connection to the shooting). All the pieces fit, right? But then there's this:
