A shooting at a Connecticut elementary school has left 27 people dead, including 18 children, according to an official with knowledge of the attack, although state police would not confirm the number of victims in what could be one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.
In a news conference after the Friday morning shooting, Lt. Paul Vance of the state police would only say there were “several fatalities at the school, both students and staff.”
He confirmed the gunman was found dead inside the school and the scene has been secured.
The killings happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, about 95 kilometres northeast of New York City.
Vance said local police received a 911 call around 9:45 a.m., ET and notified state police, asking for assistance. A SWAT team was among the throngs of police to respond.
There are unconfirmed media reports the principal and school psychologist are among the dead.
Photos from the scene showed young students — some crying and looking visibly frightened — being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other’s shoulders.
The Hartford Courant newspaper said those shot included children from kindergarten through Grade 4.
The person behind the shooting apparently had two guns, someone with knowledge of the shooting told The Associated Press. Unconfirmed media reports say the suspect fired about 100 bullets.
A law enforcement official in Washington said the attacker was a man in his 20s with ties to the school and that one of the guns was a .223-calibre rifle. A local police source said the gunman is dead, but provided no further details.
Gunman’s parent found killed in New Jersey
NBC says police obtained a warrant to search a home in New Jersey, where they found the body of one of the gunman’s parents. It’s not clear whether the deceased was the suspect’s mother or father.
CBS identified the gunman as Ryan Lanza and said his mother is a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary. It’s not known whether she was killed in the shooting.
If the Newtown death toll is confirmed, it would rank as the second deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, behind the 2007 gun slayings of 32 people at Virginia Tech University.
Three injured people were taken to Danbury Hospital, according to Pat Broderick, chairman of that facility’s emergency department. He would not reveal details about the injuries.
’It’s alarming,’ student’s dad says
Stephen Delgiadice said his eight-year-old daughter heard two big bangs and teachers told her to get in a corner. His daughter was fine.
“It’s alarming, especially in Newtown, Conn., which we always thought was the safest place in America,” he said.
The superintendent’s office said the district had locked down schools in Newtown.
Emergency vehicles surrounded the school in western Connecticut and parents were seen running toward the building as a helicopter flew overhead.
Mergim Bajraliu, 17, heard the gunshots echo from his home and raced to check on his 9-year-old sister at the school. He said his sister, who was fine, heard a scream come over the intercom at one point. He said teachers were shaking and crying as they came out of the building.
“Everyone was just traumatized,” he said.
Richard Wilford’s 7-year-old son, Richie, is in the second grade at the school. His son told him that he heard a noise that “sounded like what he described as cans falling.”
The boy told him a teacher went out to check on the noise, came back in, locked the door and had the kids huddle up in the corner until police arrived.
“There’s no words,” Wilford said. “It’s sheer terror, a sense of imminent danger, to get to your child and be there to protect him.”
The White House said Barack Obama was notified of the shooting and his spokesman Jay Carney said the president had “enormous sympathy for families that are affected.”
