Gunman Claims 27 Lives in an Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut!

Dear Commons Community,

Once again a crazed gunman with easy access to weapons enters a school and takes the lives of innocents.  The Daily News reported:

Twenty-seven people were killed, including 18 children, when a masked gunman unleashed a bloody rampage through a Connecticut elementary school.

The mass murderer, packing a pair of weapons, was among the dead at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. — a small suburban town of about 27,000 people.

The gunfire erupted around 9:40 a.m. inside the main office and soon spread to the morning kindergarten classroom — where class began just 35 minutes earlier.

A 9-year-old girl reported hearing a scream come over the school intercom during the yet-unexplained killing spree by the lone gunman. The shooter was described as a 20-year-old man with ties to the school.

Once the horrified surviving students were hustled to safety, an entire class of kids remained missing, the Hartford Courant reported.

The small children wept and held hands while fleeing the school.

Our hearts are with the victims and their families!!!
