Elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT

Today there was a tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Around 9:40 this morning, a man entered the school with two handguns and opened fire. As of this writing, 27 people are dead, 18 of them children. The shooter is also dead at the scene.

I live near Newtown and it is absolutely the last place one would expect an act of violence, let alone one of the worst mass killings in American history. There really is nothing else to say, other than that we should send our thoughts to the victims and their families, and hope this never happens again.
