    - - from WVIT livestream reports (link above)

    Local hospital reports three transports via ambulance from the elementary school have been brought there.

    State police going "room by room" to clear situation.

    Parent says school has about 500 students, K-4.

    I appreciate all the updates woofie. I'm at work and can't watch the livestream.

    Do we know anything about the shooter? This is so depressing. What is wrong with this world?

    You're welcome! The Reuters live updates link above is excellent, features all Producer Matthew's tweets.
    WVIT livestream: police conducting themselves as if there "may be a shooter at large" right now.
    Confirmation by WNBC on WVIT livestream that one person is dead - the shooter.

    School superintendent says parents may pick up their children who are students, at staging area at the fire house.

    Saw this come up on my CNN news feed.
    I just can't imagine this.

    Thoughts & prayers with the safety of the teachers & students.
    School should be a safe place.
    These school shooting stories just right out break my heart.

    :(

    Principal said to have been targeted, according to WVIT.

    Brookfield and Monroe schools in addition to Newton, currently on lockdown.

    Sandy Hook Elementary is in a "very residential" area.

    On HLN they say there's a BOLO for a car. No details yet on that. (This info from Mike Brooks) Partial tag, vehicle last seen getting on hwy whose number I can't remember.

    ETA Source: One shooter is dead. Police recovered two weapons. Not known if LE or shooter took his life. Can't confirm if there was another perp.
