A horrific mass shooting has taken place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Reports are still chaotic, but it appears as many as 27 people are dead – including 18 children, according to Fox News. The shooter is reported to be dead, and may have been the father of one of the children:

REUTERS: At least 27 people, including children, were killed on Friday when at least one shooter opened fire at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, CBS News reported, citing unnamed officials.

The shooter, the father of a student there, was also killed, CBS News reported. The principal and school psychologist were among the dead, CNN said.

There were unconfirmed reports of a second shooter after witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots fired.

Sandy Hook Elementary School teaches children from kindergarten through fourth grade – roughly ages 5 to 10.

“It was horrendous,” said parent Brenda Lebinski, who rushed to the school where her daughter is in the third grade. “Everyone was in hysterics – parents, students. There were kids coming out of the school bloodied. I don’t know if they were shot, but they were bloodied.” . . . Read More

News is out tonight that a horrific mass shooting has taken place at a Portland, Oregon area shopping mall. Reports indicate 60 shots were fired, and as many as three people, including the gunman, have been killed (this video report says one killed), with another person wounded. The gunman reportedly used an AR-15 rifle and wore body armor, wearing a white mask.

USA TODAY: Police say the man who opened fire in a suburban Portland shopping mall apparently killed himself after fatally shooting two people and wounding a third.

Clackamas County sheriff’s Lt. James Rhodes says law enforcement who flooded the Clackamas Town Center in response to the afternoon shooting didn’t fire any shots.

Witnesses described a scene of chaos and disbelief as a gunman wearing some sort of camouflage outfit and a white mask shot an initial burst of fire and then more rounds at Clackamas Town Center. Shoppers tried to find safe areas as teams of police officers began entering the mall to find the shooter.

Authorities were going store-to-store to secure the scene and to escort hiding shoppers outside, but Rhodes said there was no indication that there was more than one shooter.

Austin Patty, 20, who works at Macy’s, said he saw a man in a white mask carrying a rifle and wearing a bulletproof vest.

He heard the gunman say “I am the shooter,” as if announcing himself, Patty said. He then fired several shots paced seconds apart. . . .Read More
