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!

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.

When violence is involved we should always ask:

Were union employees involved?

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.

From the article:

"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.
