Americans tonight are facing more tragic evidence of cultural implosion. Please pray. This story is heart-breaking, and still developing. “There’s been a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut,” reports CNN. “20 children, six adults and the shooter are dead, police say. Below are the latest updates as they come to us or you can read our story of the Connecticut school shooting….Police did not discharge their weapons at any time when responding at the school, police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. However, he could not confirm whether the suspected shooter — who died at the scene — killed himself, saying that would have to be determined by the medical examiner.”

“Twenty-seven people, including 20 children, were killed Friday when a gunman  clad in black military gear opened fire inside his mother’s kindergarten class  at a Connecticut elementary school,” reports Fox News. “The shooter, who sources identified as  Adam Lanza, 20, gunned down his mother and her entire class at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., according to sources. Lanza was found dead  inside the school, according to officials. Eighteen of the children and six  more adults were dead at the school and two more children died later, according  to Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance. Vance would not confirm the shooter’s  name, and earlier in the day there were conflicting reports over the gunman’s  identity. Law enforcement sources told FoxNews.com the shooter was  Lanza. His brother, Ryan Lanza, 24, was in custody, but it was not sure if  he faced charges. ‘It is not a simplistic scene,’ Vance told  reporters. An official with knowledge of the  situation said the shooter was armed with a .223-caliber rifle. Four weapons in  total were recovered from the scene. The motive is not yet known.”
