“The shooter was 20? He had his kid when he was 16?


NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut/AP) — CBS News is reporting that 27 people are dead, including 18 students, after a mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. The gunman is among the dead.


CBS News’ John Miller reports there is preliminary information that the gunman was the father of one of the students. Miller additionally reports the gunman is 20 years old and is from New Jersey.

The shooter was killed and apparently had two guns, a person with knowledge of the shooting said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way. It is not known whether the shooter took his own life or was killed.

CBS News reports that a second person is in custody and that SWAT is now investigating the home of the suspect.

A witness tells WFSB-TV that a second man was taken out of the woods in handcuffs wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants and telling parents on the scene, “I did not do it.”

Fox Connecticut reports that the shooting began in the kindergarten classroom. Two students and a teacher were also injured in the shooting and they were taken to Dansbury Hospital, spokeswoman Diane Burke told CBS News York.

One week before Christmas...

Looks like the mother of the shooter had custody of his child and put the kid in the CT school. So he drove in from NJ, killed his mom and then went to the school and killed his son and the Kindergarten class and teachers and staffers. Evil

I'd still drag the fuckers's body through the streets from a trunk bumper for a couple days if my kid got killed

Even by mass shooting standards this is beyond horrific

I apologize to everyone for my initial post on this - it was ignorant

Unfortunately, the focus out of this horrible tragedy will be gun control. This is not a gun control issue. This is an issue with the fact that we care less and less about each other every day. We become more polarized and jaded, particularly along the lines of religion, politics, and class. Mental health is a serious issue in this country and that's what caused this tragedy, not guns.
Just say that the impossible happens and all guns are removed from the world. What stops someone from hacking away with a samauri sword? Or going after a classroom with a knife? Is the loss of only two or three lives any less tragic than the loss of 30, particularly when it's children?
People with mental health problems will find a way to deal the level of damage they feel is fair to their suffering. You don't need guns to do that. Take in to account that the worst school massacre was carried out with homemade pipe bombs. Timothy McVeigh didn't need guns to inflict the horrible pain that he did. The 9/11 hijackers didn't need guns either.
This is about actually giving a shit about each other a little more... caring that the violence in the inner cities is just as tragic and affects lives just the same as in a small Connecticut town. It's all horrible, no matter where it happens.

Unfortunately, just as my thoughts about everyone caring more about each other are too idealistic and will never happen, so is getting rid of all of the guns. There is no "sensible" gun control that will stop a handful of mentally ill people (remember, we do have 314 million people in this country, so handful is more than generous). The only solution would be complete elimination of guns. That is the only fail-safe way to stop gun violence. Waiting periods won't deter someone when they can get it off of the black market, steal from a law abiding person's home, etc. If someone is serious about it, they're going to get a gun.

first reports were wrong - like so many times before


School shooter identified as Ryan Lanza, 24, he killed his mother during massacre, officials say



yeah - Now they’re saying Ryan had nothing to do with it, that Adam was the lone shooter and was autistic with a personality disorder

pretty shitty press corps if you ask me - at least name the right guy
