A lone gunman at the center of a terrifying Friday morning elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., has been killed, authorities say.
The Hartford Courant reported that shortly after 9:40 a.m., the shooter was in the main office at Sandy Hook Elementary School and at least one victim had numerous gunshot wounds. Two handguns were recovered from the scene.
Mayor Mark Boughton said several victims had been taken to local hospitals. But details were sketchy. The Newtown Bee reported that a police officer carried a seriously wounded child from the building. (The Courant also said one shooter was reported dead).
ABC News reports there is a possible second shooter still at large, but conflicting reports seem to indicate the original shooter just had two guns, so it is unclear whether there is another shooter.
MSN News reports multiple deaths were reported as well but all that is confirmed at this point is one death, reports vary on whether more were killed or just wounded.
I'll update when the chaos has calmed and official numbers come out.
Our sympathies go out to all involved.
