20 Children Killed in Connecticut School Shooting

The killer, believed to be in his 20s, fired at least 100 rounds with several weapons including a .223 rifle and two handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, according to witnesses to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the sleepy New England town of Newton, 60 miles north east of New York City.

Sandy Hook teaches children from kindergarten through to the fourth grade, roughly ages 5 to 10, and many of the victims were reported to be the youngest in the school.
Twenty of dead were children, six were adults. The gunman also died in the attack. Another body was found at a separate crime scene in Connecticut, with CNN reporting the identity of that person as the gunman's brother.

Eighteen of the children were pronounced dead at the scene, while two died in hospital.
The dead included the gunman's mother – a teacher at the school – and the principal, Dawn Hochsprung, 47. The New York Times reported that the gunman walked into his mother's classroom at the school and shot her, but that report was not confirmed.
