    Connecticut State Police say they are assisting local police in Newtown amid reports of a shooting at an elementary school.

    The school superintendent's office says the district has locked down schools to ensure the safety of students and staff.

    The shooting was reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, in western Connecticut. State police say Newtown police called them at about 9:40 a.m. about the reports.

    The Newtown Bee newspaper (http://bit.ly/J4eUyR) posted a photo of a group of young students ? some crying, others looking visibly frightened ? being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other's shoulders.

    State police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance says they have a number of personnel on the scene to assist.

    Children Among Victims In Sandy Hook School Shooting In Newtown

    NEWTOWN—

    At least one person is dead after a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dickinson Drive.

    Police said there are multiple shooting victims, and some of them are children. They were still searching the school at 11 a.m., and police dogs had been brought in.

    Sources said a person believed to be a shooter is dead. Earlier reports of a second shooter are unconfirmed.

    Shortly after 9:40 a.m., police reported that a shooter was in the main office of the school. A person in one room had “numerous gunshot wounds,” police said.

    Groups of students — some crying, some holding hands — were being escorted away from the school by their teachers. Some students were still in the school at 10:30 a.m., parents said.

    School and local emergency officials are accounting for the children, who will be released to their parents to get them home. A staging area has been set up at the Sandy Hook fire department, directly in front of the school.

    Frustrated parents are trying to get information from officials, who are still actively searching the school.

    Dozens of state troopers are on the scene assisting local police. Heavily armed police gathered in front of the school around 10:45 a.m., and a number of stretchers were set up.

    Area hospitals have been alerted.

    Andrew Doba, a spokesman for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, said the governor is monitoring the situation and is in “constant contact” with state police, who are coordinating with federal and local officials.

    Afternoon buses and kindergarten has been cancelled.

    Check back for updates.

    Parents Seeking Children, Answers at Newtown Elementary School

    Town officials say they're trying to find a way to reunite parents with children who remain under lockdown at Sandy Hook Elementary School following confirmed shootings Friday morning.

    Officials in Newtown say they're trying to reunite parents with their children in the wake of a shocking reported shooting at an elementary school in the town’s Sandy Hook neighborhood.

    According to the Hartford Courant, one shooter is dead and one remains at large at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    First Selectman Pat Llodra told Patch that there is no information being released about the victims — only confirming that there was a shooting.

    "I'm horrified, saddened and shocked that this happened in Newtown," Llodra said. "Our priorities right now are making sure everyone safe and reuniting parents with their children."

    A reverse 911 call went out to all Newtown public school parents, NBC is reporting. Parents are converging all around the school seeking information about their children.

    Christine Wilford, a parent of a seven-year-old boy at the school, told Patch that her son was out of the school and safe with her husband. A woman standing next to Wilford burst into tears, saying her own son was still inside.

    Danbury Hospital has confirmed to TV reporters that three patients have been transported by ambulance.

    The Courant is reporting multiple injured parties, saying a shooter had been in the building’s main office and an individual in one area had “numerous gunshot wounds,” police said.

    Scores of ambulances and fire trucks from throughout this normally sleepy area in southwestern Connecticut are on scene at the school now.

    As of 10:50 a.m., reports from the scene say that a triage staging area has been set up less than .5 miles from the school.

    Newtown Patch will post more information here as it becomes available.

    So far it's confirmed that the shooter and one child are dead. There hasn't been any additional mention of the principal being killed.

    NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Connecticut State Police say there are multiple fatalities after a gunman opened fire at an elementary school in Newtown, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.

    At least one child and the gunman are dead, officials said. Three others – two children and one adult – were injured and taken to Danbury Hospital. It’s unclear if the child who died was one of those taken to the hospital.

    It happened around 9:40 a.m. Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One 8-year-old student told CBS 2′s Lou Young he was on his way to the school’s office when he saw the gunman.

    “I saw some of the bullets going back the hall and then a teacher pulled me into her classroom,” he said.


    Police believe there may be a second gunman and are looking for a red or maroon van with its back window blown out, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.

    The district has been placed on lockdown. Schools in surrounding areas are also on lockdown.

    Danbury Hospital spokesperson Diane Burke told CBS 2 that the hospital is also on lockdown as a precautionary measure. No one is being allowed out of the hospital and other than emergencies, no one is being allowed in, she said.

    Lisa Bailey, a Newtown resident with three children in Newtown schools, told CBSNewYork.com, “Newtown is a quiet town. I’d never expect this to happen here. It’s so scary. Your kids are not safe anywhere.”

    Students were taken to a nearby firehouse where they are being reunited with their parents. Afternoon kindergarten has been cancelled and there will be no mid-day bus runs, according to the district’s website.

    CBS News: Shooting called 'atrocious'; Multiple people dead

    NEWTOWN, CT (WFSB) -

    CBS News is reporting that numerous children have been killed along with the gunman after a shooting inside a school in Newtown Friday morning.

    The scene is being called 'atrocious' and the death toll is expected to be in double digits.


    According to the Associated Press, the gunman was killed at the school, but it was unknown how the unidentified gunman died.

    Connecticut State Police said they have been assisting Newtown police after the shooting was reported inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    There are reports that a teacher was shot in the foot and taken to the area hospital. Officials at Bridgeport Hospital have confirmed that they have one woman, who was shot and in stable condition.

    There are multiple reports of injuries, according to the Newtown Bee.

    The shooting was reported around 9:41 a.m., according to Connecticut State Police. Few details have been released during this unfolding situation, but state police said this is one of the worst shootings emergency officials have seen in a long time.

    The children inside the school have been evacuated to the nearby Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire Department and reunited with their parents at this staging area.

    Multiple police, ambulance and emergency crews remain at the scene.

    Eyewitness News reporters on the scene observed a man in camouflage gear being taken away from the staging area. He screamed to people in the area that he was not involved in the shooting.

    The superintendent's office said the district has locked down schools as a preventive measure to ensure safety of the students and staff. The Newtown High School is no longer on lock down and students are safe, according to its Twitter account.

    The only shooting was at Sandy Hook Elementary School, officials confirmed.

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is on his way to Newtown and just before 12:30 p.m., he had finished a conference call with federal officials about what assistance could be needed.

    According to Newtown officials, afternoon kindergarten is canceled for Friday and there will be no midday bus runs.

    According to sources, Yale-New Haven Hospital has activated emergency triage unit, which responds to mass-casualty incidents.

    There are 600 students that attend Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    No other information was released.

    [Updated at 12:27 p.m. ET] The mom who spoke to CNN's Meredith Artley said she heard "at least 100 rounds" being fired.

    The shooting began about 9:35 a.m., the parent said. There was a "pop pop pop" in the hall outside the room. Three people went out of the room into the hall where the sounds had come from. "Only one person came back," we were told.

    The witness told Artley that she then called 911. She said she never saw the shooter but she later was escorted outside the room past two bodies lying in blood.

    I am in tears here. Absolutely in tears. I can't watch TV right now (my toddler doesn't need to see coverage of this), but am following it online. I just can't even imagine the horror and the fear that those poor little innocent kids must have felt. I just can't....

    I'm going to go hugs my kids now and cry.

    I'm watching Fox New Live and they are saying that the rumor is that there is a kindergarten class that is unaccounted for and possibly the victims. Having a kindergartner and thinking of the fear she would have in this type of situation just breaks my heart.

    From the radio (I'm listening via the web) Apparently they have a person in custody, someone related to the shooting. Police also visited the dead shooter's father's house in NJ. They are saying was approx. 20 years old.

    I can't believe how horrible this is. It started off with the reports of a teacher being shot in the foot and evolved into this.
