    Connecticut school district on lockdown after shooting report at a Newtown elemen-#1

    Connecticut School District on Lockdown Following Shooting Report (abcnews.go.com
    A Connecticut school district is on lockdown today following reports of an unconfirmed shooting at an elementary school.

    "Due to reports of a shooting as yet unconfirmed, the district is taking preventive measures by putting all schools in lockdown until we ensure the safety of all students and staff," Newton Public School District secretary of superintendent Kathy June said in a statement.

    State police are sending units to Newtown following reports of a shooting at an elementary school.
    A witness told News 8 she saw two children, one had a bloody face, the other with a hand injury.

    State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance would not confirm what is happening, but he told News 8 that several troopers are responding to the school at the request of Newtown police.
