Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut
(Reuters) - All public schools in Newtown, Connecticut, were placed in lockdown on Friday following an unconfirmed report of a shooting at one of the district's schools, the superintendent's office said.
The town's weekly newspaper said on its website that one child was carried from Sandy Hook Elementary School by a police officer, and the child appeared to have been wounded.
Connecticut State Police said its officers were at the scene with local police but provided no additional details. The emergency call to police occurred at 9:41 a.m., state police said.
