NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) â?? A shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut on Friday ended with the shooter dead and at least one teacher wounded and sent frightened pupils into the parking lot.
More than a dozen people including elementary school children were shot and killed in the school shooting, ABC news has confirmed.
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.
A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps said a teacher had been shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital.
The superintendent's office said the district had locked down schools in Newtown, in western Connecticut about 60 miles northeast of New York City.
State police said Newtown police called them around 9:40 a.m.
