ROUGH CUT- NO REPORTER NARRATION
STORY: The peace and security of the suburban Connecticut community of Newtown lay shattered on Friday (December 14) after a gunman attacked a primary school in one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history.
Tearful parents and children gathered around Sandy Hook Elementary School by midday on Friday, surrounded by police vehicles, as young and old alike struggled to make sense of a shooting rampage that killed at least 28 people, including 20 children.
Police said a heavily armed gunman fatally shot 26 people, including 20 children at the school, and was later found dead in the school building. Another adult was found dead in the town, which police were investigating as a related incident.
Home to about 27,000 people, the wealthy, wooded town of Newtown is in southeastern Connecticut, about 80 miles (130 km) northeast of New York City. It is a bedroom community, with many homes situated on multiple acres of land and residents commuting to larger cities including Hartford and Stamford.
"Evil visited this community today," Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy told reporters.
