BREAKING: School Shooting In CT

Here we go again:

State police are responding to a report of a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dickinson Drive, school officials said.

Police are reporting a number of injured parties. The nature of their injuries is not clear.

State police sources said one shooter is dead. Earlier reports of a second shooter are unconfirmed.

    Fox News Channel is now reporting the shooter is dead, and “multiple fatalities,” whatever that means.

  2. ConservativeWanderer

    Latest update from FNC: 5 children — and this was at an elementary school — are dead.

    This makes me sick to my stomach.  What horrible news. 

  4. ConservativeWanderer

    More from FNC… death toll now 26 not including the shooter… 18 of them children.

    This is my school district.  My 9-yr old is currently outplaced to another school but if he wasn’t he’d have been in a 3rd grade classroom at the time.

    I know the Principal and School Psychologist have been killed as  well as several children, maybe as many as 18.

    Please pray for their families.

    Oh, Lord….

    This is horrible.

    Even though I know hearing about two attacks where kids were hurt doesn’t actually make it more probable that my kids will be attacked… gotta do something, or you’ll go insane, and praying doesn’t fill the same spot.  Schools and malls are so horrifically vulnerable.

    Gary- it’s horrible, but I’m very glad your son is elsewhere.  No comfort to those whose loved ones weren’t, but every person out of the line of fire is an improvement.

    A horrible atrocity. Listening to Dana Loesch’s coverage (via iHeartRadio); better than the TV channels.

    A terrible day.

    One of our close friends lost her little girl, a 1st grader.  I’m so horrified and sick to my stomach with grief I don’t know what to do.

    I’m sorry.

    Drudge had a photo up most of the day of a distraught young woman talking on her cellphone. My first thought: “How awful! I hope she’s going to find out her child is all right.” But there are 20 young mothers who found out today that their child will not be home this evening. I cannot imagine the inexpressible grief they are feeling.

    Incidents like this force me to wage war against my misanthropic impulses.
