That's absolutely sickening. My thoughts go out to all the families impacted, I can't imagine the horror being experienced there today.

There was an elementary school shooting in CT this AM. It is the top story of pretty much every news outlet. Details still coming but looks like 20 or more dead, adults and children.

I am struggling here.

Not that I can easily understand killing a single person, or the senseless violence of a mass shooting in general; but, I truly am befuddled at the thought of killing 18 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL students.... There is no way I can twist my brain around to make this make any sort of sense. Again, shootings in general bother me, but on some level i can see motivations and the torment that would twist someones world around to make that seem like an option... but these are at oldest 4th graders!!!

any news on motive?

No details on the shooter except that he was 24 and one of the fatalities. The news isn't sure if he took his own life or if the police took him down.

I havenít seen anything yet. I did read that a second person is in custody for a possible connection to the shooting.

He was arguing with the principle, shot here and then who knows from there. She or someone in the office were smart enough to turn on the speaker so the entire school could hear what was happening. This prompted many teachers to locke their doors and hide. (at least that's what I've heard on the news at lunch)

How did our society become so very messed up?

I just heard about this on the radio. How horrible. I cannot fathom what these families are going through. Totally makes me want to just hug my littles ones.

I don't know why, but this is for some reason hitting me very hard. I don't know anyone in Connecticut, so why does it seem to be cutting right through me today?

Maybe its because my kids don't live with me and its times like these I wish they were here?

Any thoughts from anyone?

truly, how sad. It wasn't like this for me or my kids but my grans live a totally different life because of all of this.

Makes me grateful for the security at place in so many schools around here now.

But still I'm sad that we need it at all.

I understand what you're saying DC. I just keep thinking about my 8 yr old son and if this had been his school. I've been on the verge of tears for the last hour.

I don't have children, but this is breaking my heart as well. How could someone do this? If you want to die, then kill yourself, AND don't take innocent children away from their families in the process.

Just the fact that an outsider walks into an elementary school carrying a gun is disturbing......the rest of it is horrifying.

Dallas news is saying the gunman (a young man in his 20's) was the father of one of the kids at the school. That is why security let him in the school.

I guess i just meant the mentality of somebody who feels the need to carry a gun into a school.....i'm assuming it was concealed. That's what is disturbing to me. And by 'outsider' in this instance, i meant non-school employee (taking into account the possibility in some rough schools of armed guards, police, etc.....sure that wouldn't apply to this elementary school).

I cannot imagine (and don't really want to imagine)what these families are suffering right now. May God give them strength. I haven't heard of any injured - just killed. This is just wrong.

There are 3 injured with serious injuries that were taken to the local hospital. No info on if they were adults or children, and not sure if they died after arriving and are in the count.
