His mom was a teacher there. Couldn't just kill her after school?

Rumour is that the dad was in NJ and is dead.

OK, summarizing that the kindergarten classroom mainly affected was taught by his mother. Confirmed 2 semi auto hand guns and dressed in black.

Just left seeing the early bird viewing of the hobbit and immediately heard this on the radio. I was actually shedding some man tears on the drive home.

To escape the wonderful world of middle earth only to be faced with something like this was especially jarring. Without the escapism of entertainment I would have cracked a long time ago. I feel so helpless when shit like this goes down. I do credit Halo for helping to pull me out of my post 9/11 grief.

If any of you are parents, please tell your kids how much you love them if you haven't already. I lack the courage to join CheapyD in Japan, but America is sick right now and I'm afraid spree killings like this will only continue until we get real mental healh care for everyone. Too many lives have been taken, this most recent incident being especially harrowing due to the age of the victims.

Edit: I read through some other comments and anger at the gunman, especially since he's already dead, will accomplish nothing. All you'll end up doing is looking for someone else to blame. We need to show compassion for the victims and ways to prevent things like this from happening in the future. This gunman, no matter how we like to portray him and fit him in a easy category, was still human. Somewhere along the way his value on the sanctity of human life was distorted.

If you have a coworker, schoolmate, whatever the case may be that is a loner or seems uncommunicative, show him/her some warmth and let them know that you care about them and value their well being. Just greeting them and letting them know you're willing to hear about any troubles they have can go a long way.

From what I understand none of them were killed though?

Yeah the shooting at an elementary school is some sick, scary shit. It does make you want to vomit.


Well the guy said stabbed to death, so I'm thinking killed.

Still wtf, and elementary school...

How was the Hobbit?

How was the Hobbit?


Not as bad as some critics have portrayed it, but I'm glad I only paid $5.50 and not the $14.00 they wanted for the 48fps 3D showing they had at the same time. I may be a consumer, but I'm still a cheap ass.

It's great escapism and will remind you of why you loved the Lord of the Rings in the first place. Be sure to not drink too much about two hours prior since it's a long movie.

I could at least understand someone shooting up a H.S. with all the b.s. that goes on at that level, but for the love of God what could an elementary student possibly do to someone to cause such rage??? Just don't get it...
End of line.

His dad was found dead, shot in Hoboken, so it sounds like he killed him first, drove to CT, and then shot up the school.

Yeah. Kills dad in NJ. Then drives to CT and targets his mom and pretty much kills everyone in the classroom.

as bad as it sounds, I'm just glad he didn't go on a shooting spree at some random school. that would creep me out even more.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Yeah because 18 innocent children and 8 innocent adults isn't "creepy" enough.

Walking into a random school and shooting it up is different then a kid going and killing his mom/whoever was near her.

As someone who goes to Chardon High School (and was there during the shooting earlier this year), I know what they are going through, even though this much is worse. Thoughts go out to them.

There's no explanation for killing children. You're angry with your parents? Why the f take it out on some random kids. Sorry, to me, this person lost his humanity and isn't human to me.

Maybe he was jealous that his mom loved her students more than him so he killed them all.

The CT news station is reporting we don't know if his father is dead, if his brother had anything to do with this, and that his girlfriend and friend are missing.

I'm watching a news conference and the guy said 20 kids and 6 adults.

One more adult at a secondary crime scene in CT.

This is insane.

I just don't understand....I'm angry, sad, frustrated, and want answers that unfortunately I will never get. Senseless doesn't even begin to describe this.

There's Always a reason for things like this. More than likely a clinical diagnosis of mental illness. It's even more important to recognize the fact that this guy Was human. Stripping him of his humanity serves no other purpose than to absolve our own failings as a society to see the warning signs.

No talk shows are live. The daytime ones are filmed in the morning so they can be rerun anytime a network wants during the day. Nighttime ones are usually recorded around 4pm local time, however being Friday they were probably filmed yesterday.

It seems the shooter may have been misidentified.
