AP reporting 18 of 27 dead in Newtown school shooting are children (Entire class unaccounted for)Topics:
Update: Just heard on Fox that the number of children killed is now at 20. The killer killed his parents first ... then went to Connecticut to kill a woman he was involved with somehow -- whether wife or ex-girlfriend -- and also to kill all the children near her. This is one really sick, genuinely Evil, very weak, nutcase.
Via CBS Boston:
At least 27 people were killed in a shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.Although it appears that one gunman is dead, there are unconfirmed reports of a possible second gunman.
Among the dead are 18 children, according to CBS News and the Associated Press, citing law enforcement officials.
Students at the school were all between ages five and ten.
MSNBC has an interview with one of the students on the scene:
According to reports, the shooter is the 20 year-old father of one of the students and he is from New Jersey.
Update: Word from Fox News is that the shooter killed his mother before going to the school to slaughter women and children and that the shooter's mother (now dead at his hand) 'may have' been a teacher at the Sandy Hook school.
Update: There's a major conflict in news reports right now. According to the New York Post, the shooter's name is Adam Lanza, not Ryan. Ryan is his brother and is being questioned by police but, per the Post, is not a suspect. The AP, however, says it is indeed Ryan who's the shooter and that his brother is the one who's being questioned.
... Adam Lanza's older brother, 24-year-old Ryan Lanza,, of Hoboken, N.J., is being questioned by police. An earlier report from a law enforcement official mistakenly transposed the brothers' first names.
... Adam Lanza is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
