Reports: At least 26 dead - 18 children - in CT elementary school shooting

(WMC-TV) - There have been preliminary reports at least 26 people killed - including several children - in a shooting at an elementary school Friday.

A parent who was at the school told a CNN producer that the principal, vice principal and school psychologist left the office right after shots rang out. The vice principal had been shot in the foot or leg and crawled back into the office.

The parent said she saw the other two lying in the hall, along with children, "in pools of blood," according to the producer.

Authorities said the suspected gunman was dead and his body was in a kindergarten classroom. At least some of the shooting took place inside the classroom.

According to WFSB, authorities received word of the incident at Sandy Hook Elementary around 9:41 a.m. ET. Sources told WFSB that Yale-New Haven Hospital had activated an emergency triage unit, which responds to mass casualty incidents. Click here for the full story.
