At around 10am this morning, a shooting of an unconfirmed 100 rounds occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School, located in Newtown, Connecticut, as was reported by local news sources. Children were passing through the hallways through pools of blood, as CNN reports.

There have been multiple gunmen identified in the shooting incident  One gunman has been reported as shot to death and the body remains inside of the school, as of 2pm.

Some students have reportedly been taken to the hospital.  One child has been confirmed as wounded, and was carried out of the building. An unknown amount of arrivals have been escorted to Danbury Hospital, which was under lockdown as a way of controlling the number of “concerned” people and to “protect confidentiality.”

The principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School is among the victims of the shooting, along with eight other adults. There has also been confirmation that school children are also among the victims.

All nearby Newtown schools were on lockdown, including: Wilton , Monroe, and Bethel schools. Danbury schools were being closely watched, but were not brought to lockdown status.

Nearby city of Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton talked on local CT stations about the lockdown of surrounding areas.

Students were escorted away from the school in clusters and told to cover their eyes.

There will be a press conference held by local police at 1pm.

Speculation suggests a parent is the cause of the shootings, although unconfirmed. There is developing information of a resident of New Jersey as a possible culprit and with an unknown motive at this time.

The state of Connecticut has asked neighboring states for medical assistance.

Details to come.

This may be one of the worst shootings in the nation’s history.
