Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2012 at 3:08 PM

News out of Connecticut this morning indicates that a shooting has taken place at Newtown, Conn.'s Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Details are sketchy, as they so often tend to be in the early period after such incidents, but many reports have indicated at least one confirmed death, that of the shooter, whose identity has yet to be confirmed.

CNN and the Hartford Courant have reported that there have been multiple deaths, including those of children. Local police will be holding a press conference at 1:00 p.m. EST.

We'll keep things updated on this page.

UPDATE, 10:51 a.m.: A CBS Connecticut affiliate is reporting that there have been at least 27 deaths, including 14 children.


UPDATE, 3:07 p.m.: The shooter is suspected to be Adam Lanza, a 20 year old resident of Newtown, according to the Associated Press. His mother, Nancy Lanza, was found dead in her home. She was a teacher at Sandy Hook. Reports say that Ryan Lanza, the 24-year-old brother of Adam and original suspected shooter, has been questioned by area police.
