Listening to a live news stream including the press conference by the local law enforcement. This takes Columbine to a whole new level and nearly matches what happened at VA Tech in the death toll.

I find myself absolutely gut punched. I don't know how I would respond as a parent. The school, the size of it, the suburban location of it, could easily be my kids' school. Those poor parents.

I texted billy as soon as I heard about it because they said it was relatively close to where he is.

Dam man this is pretty fucked up, for a kid to shoot up a school and for a college student to shoot up a school is one thing, but for a parent to come in and shoot up an elementary school is just straight fucked up.

they keep mentioning a second shooter, but they do not know if he is actually involved in this or who he is.

Newtown high and elementary schools are literally across the street from where I work. Sean (wingnut, pops racer) as well. It's horrible that this happened. There are 4 helicopters in the air right now and two small planes flying as well.

Reports are that the shooter was a parent.

Shooter is dead. They are holding someone else for questioning who may be related - that seems to be who they're talking about as the second shooter.

NY Times and WSJ seem to be doing the best job of quality reporting on this.

From the NY Times:

The gunman on Friday walked into an elementary school where his mother was a teacher. He shot and killed her and then shot 18 students in her classroom, an official said.

From the WSJ:

A law-enforcement official identified the suspected shooter as Ryan Lanza, 24 years old. The official said his mother was a teacher at the school, and she was believed to be among the victims.

The shooting, which began inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., at about 9:40 a.m., was concentrated around a single classroom, a school bathroom and a hallway, the official said.
