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.

At least 26 dead in shooting at Connecticut elementary school
December 14, 2012

DEVELOPING: Authorities say at least 26 people, including 18 children, were killed Friday when a gunman opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school.

A law enforcement official said the shooter, who is dead, is believed to be a father of one of the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

An official with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press that the man apparently had two guns.

Earlier reports of a second gunman are unconfirmed. The Connecticut Post reports that police are also questioning a handcuffed man in connection with the shooting. Witnesses told the newspaper he was led out of the woods by officers.

Shortly after 9:40 a.m., authorities reported that a shooter was in the main office of the school. A person in one room had "numerous gunshot wounds," police told the Hartford Courant.

A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps said a teacher was shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital. Local news outlets also reported that the principal was among those shot.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said two firearms were recovered from the scene.

President Obama was notified of the shooting around 10:30 am ET, White House officials said.

The Newtown School District has locked down schools as a preventive measure to ensure the safety of students and staff.

A statement on the district's website stated that afternoon kindergarten classes have been canceled.

The elementary school has close to 700 students.

Newtown is in Fairfield County, about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 60 miles northeast of New York City.

I was watching this link and a reporter is talking.  Not sure she realizes her audio is on.  She was on the phone with a federal LE source and she confirmed with the source that someone named Peter Laza is the shooter.  I can't believe she doesn't realize she can be heard.  She just repeated the conversation to someone named Darius.

She also said that the Fed source confirmed that a 'person of interest' was taken into custody soon afterward and is being questioned.  They wouldn't tell her if it was a second shooter or how he was connected to case.

[Updated at 1:42 p.m. ET] Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance said the shooter is dead inside the school.

Vance said there are a number of fatalities that includes both children and adults. He did not add more details about how many people were killed during the school shooting.

Thanks, muffy.  It would make sense as I was directed to that site through Foxnews.  Maybe it's a local news station that was allowing the bigger media to use their feed?  That might explain why the audio was on and she seem oblivious to it.  She also talked about search warrants being executed and that the number of dead was 28.

I'm seeing stuff on twitter that the shooter's mom was a teacher at the school and one of the dead.  Also that he's 24 and had 4 guns.

Just saw that mom may be kindergarten teacher. 

I was watching parents being interviewed this morning and they were saying that the security is good at the school.  The doors are kept locked and you have to provide id in the office before you can see anyone or pick up a child.  If the shooter's mom worked at the school, that might explain how he gained access to a classroom.
