As Conn. school shooting unfolded, a custodian ran through the halls warning of a gunman
He said someone had turned on the intercom so that "you could hear people in the office. You could hear the hysteria that was going on. I think whoever did that saved a lot of people. Everyone in the school was listening to the terror that was transpiring."
Also, a custodian ran around, warning people there was a gunman, Varga said.
"He said, 'Guys! Get down! Hide!'" Varga said. "So he was actually a hero." The teacher said he did not know if the custodian survived.
Mergim Bajraliu, 17, heard the gunshots echo from his home and ran to check on his 9-year-old sister at the school. He said his sister, who was uninjured, heard a scream come over the intercom. He said teachers were shaking and crying as they came out of the building.
"Everyone was just traumatized," he said.

3. The Columbine kids had cell phones
Children this young don't have them. Teachers may not keep phones2with them as they teach kindergarten.
Communication is an important thing to think about.

6. You need to re-read the article. Mergim Bajraliu was NOT the janitor. He was a brother of ...
one of the kids inside of the school.
Sounds like he did not even go into the school.
