NEWTOWN, CT - Authorities with knowledge of the Connecticut school shooting confirm that 27 people are dead, including 18 children.
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.
Stephen Delgiadice said his 8-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, Connecticut, 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, in western Connecticut about 60 miles northeast of New York City.
State police said Newtown police called them around 7:40 a.m. Arizona time.
A photo posted by The Newtown Bee newspaper showed young students - some crying, others looking frightened - being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other's shoulders.
