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.

So NOW, NBC 4 is saying the man that was being held, but released is the shooter’s younger brother (20 years old).
What the heck?
Why can’t the MSM report accurately?
The “Real Ryan Lanza” is posting on Facebook it’s not him.
That is why I have refrained from posting anything about this. Everything we have been told so far is wromg except for maybe the number of dead and yet another innocent American’s reputation has been smeared.
Just go back to your high and rightous plateau and soak you head. Give it a rest, you made your point, don’t belabor it.
The MSM is still all over the map with reporting on the shooter. Good grief. What is already an enormous evil and tragedy for the innocent victims and their families is getting stranger with the public naming of the shooter and the FB published insistence it’s not the same guy that the MSM was posting. Amazing coincidence of names, ages, places.
I just read in another article that the shooter’s girlfriend has not been located.
Maybe someone with access to his FB page logged in and posted pretending to be him?
You would be Right about this Mesta. It’s all over the map depending on which news source, news blog, twitter, facebook... What a coincidence for the name, age, hometown.
little bammy just wrapped it up. He is signaling MPM to begin the drumbeat.
"We have endured this too many times..."
"We will take meaningful action..."
All mouthpiece media are proclaiming "this is the moment" that Washing DC "acts on this."
CBS comparing firearms to "poison."
Here comes the "common sense gun control."
Now, Adam (20) may be the shooter and deceased or may be the brother of the shooter Ryan Lanza (24) AND the MOTHER of the shooter is either deceased in the classroom or at the home in Newtown.
media claiming Law Enforcement confused. Blaming the LE instead of those at the briefing whom the media “anonymously sourced” over and over.
two roomates taken in for questioning of “ryan lanza”.
what they are “hearing” (MSM)
mailonline says shooter’s girlfriend and another friend are missing in NJ and that 29 killed in all, including 22 children.
Fox just said shooter is Adam Lanza (brother) not Ryan.
Prayers for all these poor people.
“reporterette” reporting the shooter, from Hoboken, went to CT. killed someone at the house, went to the school with brother and shot in his mother’s classroom.
“reporterette” now saying it’s “Adam Lanza” the shooter and his brother Ryan is being questioned.
MSM and social media FAIL.
More reason not to have Public profiles.
I made my point, good. I hope it comes back to you the next time you are tempted to use the murder of children to make a cheap political point.
That would be a refreshing change.
Can you pull 174 and 179 which i posted a link?
You obviously do not get the point of giving it a rest so I will go further. Those who hold others out as not meeting their standards of ethics, knowledge, abilities, or sensitivities tend to be egocentric. They are never content as they have a nervosis to nit pick problems they see or points they do not agree with.
It would probably be a good idea if you stopped patting yourself on the back for twice publicly chiding me about a post I made. There is a private e mail one can employ were they interested in making a personal point. I see your ego to be recognized as a just or thoughtful person forced you to exceed proper e mail behavior. Apparently you cannot help yourself and for that I feel sorry for you.
I can’t believe if it’s the brother now, and a “Ryan Lanza” was at the scene and being questioned, that the Police would allow him to be posting on his Facebook while in custody.
But stranger things have happened. They are sticking on the Last name and the two first names. Either a “Ryan Lanza or Adam Lanza” is the gunman and the other being questioned and was at the scene.
I think that is probably a technique they wished to employ because the conversations on face book are retrievable and not subject to self incrimination.
Hadn’t thought of that.
It was obscene though given the absolute fact that, rather than offer prayers or sympathy or just shutting up, you chose to politicize the murder of six year old children.
After hearing the screech from this “Reichstag fire ”, none of should be surprised at the push for nobama to try Executive Ordering 2nd Amendment axed.
I see what happened now...it was Adam, but police found Ryan’s ID on Adam’s body.
Ryan told police Adam was autistic
I just read another article on Yahoo news, that they aren’t sure his mother ever worked at the school? Why would that 20 year-old man drive to the school and do this?
Makes you long for the 1950’s.
A few observations based on (n)hand rumor/faulty news reporting...
Just on ZH:
Update 3: Adam had Aseprger Syndrome - a high functioning form of autism. In other words, watch as the debate rages over the traditional bogeyman of gun control, in a country with over three hundred million weapons, when we may well simply be talking about a mentally ill young adult.
May or may not be true but from his photo, he seems pretty shy and timid. IMO, he doesn't seem quite up to methodically taking the lives of 20 children and seven adults. It would seem to take a seriously cold-hearted, and proficient killer capable of calmly reloading under extreme stress.
Why the mask? What about reports of two shooters? What happened to the other person of interest? What about the vehicle leaving the area with the rear window blown out? Why was the mom killed? Why wasn't he rushed as he seems not very well built. How exactly did he get in? Where is the surveillance footage? Where was the hate? What was the motive? Aren't AS suffers clumsy?
A fiction novelist or conspiracy theorist has more than enough here to construct a professionally planned hit to further an agenda similar fast and furious as some have alleged it was setup as a reason to restrict the second Amendment.
good questions. IMHO from experience, albeit small, with autism and the higher function, even the higher function kids wouldn’t plan out and act out this kind of violence. the Borderline Personality Disorder along with the meds, that’s a different story. perhaps his dosage was upped and upped. not good on a young male, predisposed to BPD.
From my experience in schools as a: parent, Teacher and volunteer, the school system (public) is a BIG PUSHER of Drugs for the kids. Attention Deficit Disorder, ADDHD and depression. 1/2 the kids in one of my kid’s gifted classes was on the ADD dope.
When a boy would act like a boy, teachers wanted them to go on the drugs. The School systems have a hand in the drugs-to-kids problem.
Why go to the school anyway? Why wouldn't he have just did himself after mom? Would take a strong hatred/get even reason for an AS sufferer to go to all that trouble.
It doesn't add up given what we know or the rumors floating around.
Re #164: “the children are with Jesus. “
Not all will believe that, but I do.
How many of them would have reached the age of accountability (about 12 according to Jewish tradition) before having been ensnared in Satan’s web as so many kids lamentably are?
How many innocents were murdered by abortion over this past year alone in CT? They never knew a parents love; not one Mothers kiss or one birthday. That is the silent massacre no one seems to grieve.
