Multiple people are dead after a shooting this morning at a Connecticut elementary school, according to a report.
According to a witness report, the school's principal and another staffer were killed while the vice principal was shot in the leg afte a gunman opened fire in a hallway.
A witness said gunshots were heard in the hallway during a meeting and that "100 rounds" must have been fired, according to CNN. After the shots were fired, three people ran into the hallway but only the vice principal crawled back.
Cops responded to reports of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary just after 9:40 a.m., and said the gunman was in the school's main office, according to reports.

Nancy Pelosi is not amused.
This will take attention away from the oh-so-critical fiscal cliff!
We can only pray no children were injured.
These shooting are getting the smell of Fast and Furious! Next we’ll hear about some Fed funding on some unrelated program with the perp, like the Aurora, CO movie shooting.
Notice they are happening in gun control states.
I wouldn’t be surprised. Paging Carolyn McCarthy, Chuck Schumer, and Diane Feinstein....
Were union employees involved?
Costas will need extra long halftime this Sunday.
There’s unvetted info flying all the place about this story. I’ve heard there are 2 gunmen and ones still on the loose.. I’ve heard on a story linked by Drudge that the gunman’s daughter was shot. I’ve heard that the principal shot and killed dthe gunman and now this article is saying that the gunman killed the principal. Wouldn’t it be nice if the press used a little restraint and only reported what they knew to be facts?
CO is a "gun control state"? Maybe I better stop carrying mine around.
"The White House said President Obama was notified of the shooting."
Now, let that settle in, and tell me if TOTUS knew about Benghazi.
Of course, the liberals will skip through puddles of blood to push their agenda.
Another shooting in a gun-free zone? How can this be happening?
18 children now being report and 8 adults on Fox
CBS is saying 27 dead. Pure evil in this world.
CBS is saying 27 dead. Pure evil in this world.
Fox News just reporting that at least 26 eople were killed in CT shooting.
Who targets children?
prayers for the families and children.
No justification for this. NONE. These were babies
This does not sound like a domestic incident gone wrong. Clearly a terrorist attack of some type. Question is who. Deranged individual, jihadist, that is going to be the question, and we are going to have to read between the lines of the politically correct information put out by the media.
I am waiting for the official government pronouncement that this isn’t terrorism. Then, we will know that it is.
27 dead, including 18 children.
[CT local reporters are saying this is turning into the worst school shooting in US history.]
Yes via sites like WTIC sources like CBS say 27 and 14 of them are children
Of course, Obama will deny it if that’s the case. Just an unfortunate, random shooting is all.
The DUmmies are going into warp drive stupid blaming guns, not the lunatic.
CBS site says shooter is father of one student
Many children now reported dead.
Someone said to me that the gunman was a muslim.... Killed his own daughter... I wonder if we will get the truth soon.
Yes the 27 dead bulletin just came across my local radio.
I was so startled, it caused me to capsize the boat I was in causing me to lose all my guns into the sea.
cut it out with the cute supposedly off color comments people..
do you EVER LAY OFF ???
sheesh.. this is utterly horrible.
The thing is, if one is stupid enough to disarm, then one is going to be the victim of another who is armed.
It applies to countries as well as citizens.
There is no way in Hell I am going to live in this nut infested country without my gun.
Just not going to do it.
News conference coming on live very soon.
This sounds like the Bescloss (sp?) disaster, not a lone lunatic. But who knows?
“This does not sound like a domestic incident gone wrong. Clearly a terrorist attack of some type. Question is who.”
I’m reading some Twitter posts from the local reporters who are saying a father of one of the kids at the school was the shooter. Targeting first the principal and school psychologist. Well...I have to wonder whether this DID stem from a domestic incident or not? Was a father not allowed to see their child at the school so they go on a killing spree? HOpe not but my bet is that’s what’s up.
This is absolutely horrible
I am afraid the Gun Control Fascists will use this to push for Gun Control. Gun Control....as in Schools being No Gun Zones...did not save these children and school workers
Fox now reporting that school IDs all before entering school...you cannot enter without ID....and whoever shot had access to the school. This was not a random shooting. This was quite well planned with INSIDE SCHOOL ASSISTANCE
There is something up here...especially with the Feds so quick on the scene
Looks like some 17 children killed along with 7 or 8 “unarmed” adults.
Rush talking about it now.
All teachers should open carry, and go to the shooting range once a month.
He killed all the children and teachers in a kindregarten class???
FOX saying that the shooter had to be visually recognized and buzzed in.
Amish drive by would be a good guess.
Lunatic was the only word I could call him without getting banned!
Rush is saying libs and gun grabbers are already plotting to use this to blame Conservatives....
“I am afraid the Gun Control Fascists will use this to push for Gun Control. Gun Control....”
Yup...would be just as effective as the laws against illegal drugs. Or the laws that one isn’t supposed to come into this country illegally. Or the laws that make EVERY drive only go the speed limit...or...or...or??
HUH??? I thought gun control was having a good sight picture and knowing where your shots went.
Good post. Prayers for all.
