    At least some of the shootings occurred in a kindergarten classroom, unclear if that is where dead gunmen was found. #Newtown

    I just don't understand how someone can just walk into a building and start shooting.

    Local news (in Ohio) just said the shootings took place in a Kindergarten classroom, and that children are among the dead.

    I cannot even bear to think of this.

School's know when a parent/teacher conference is scheduled. IF someone buzzes the door and it is someone who is not scheduled to be there, then the resource officer on school property should be the one to go up to the door and question the person's motives for being there.

    Also, maybe there needs to be an ID card (school logo, "PARENT" clearly written on it) where a parent could show it at doors. I know my nieces school, you have to have a pass (school logo on it) just to pick your kid up during regular pick up times. They won't allow any child in any car if they do not have this pass visibly showing.

    As someone else pointed out, I understand we are not 100% safe anywhere, but we should be able to put extra emphasis on our schools safety in order to protect our children.

    MOO
    We have all those things at our schools in my district - but you STILL need to allow for things like council pta folks coming in and dropping off stuff for local ptas, aunts coming in to deliver a forgotten lunch, etc. There is a LOT of coming and going that's totally legit in a school during the day - I think it's quite possible this shooter would have passed all those checks.

    Official: Gunman killed in Conn. school shooting

    By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN, AP
    21 minutes ago

    NEWTOWN, Conn. — A shooting at a Connecticut elementary school Friday left the gunman dead and at least one teacher wounded and sent frightened pupils into the parking lot.

    The shooter was killed and apparently had two guns, a person with knowledge of the shooting said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way.

    It wasn't clear how many people were injured at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps said a teacher had been shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital...

    WCBS in New York is reporting the police are looking for a maroon or red color car with its back window shot out.
