The Hartford Courant has confirmed that one person at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was killed Friday morning in a shooting. Other victims have been reported as well. The shooter has been killed.

Multiple shots were heard during morning announcements at around 9:40 a.m., after which police were called. Students have been evacuated, and police and state troopers are on the scene.

UPDATE 11:50 a.m.: CNN has confirmed that one of the victims is a student at the school. Danbury, Connecticut, mayor Mark Boughton has said that “at least three people were wounded and are in ‘very serious’ condition” at that town’s hospital.

UPDATE 12:17 p.m.: According to an eyewitness inside the school, three of the shooter’s targets appear to have been the principal, the vice principal and the school psychologist, who went out into the hallway when the first shots were fired. The vice principal was wounded in the foot or leg and came crawling back, and the principal and psychologist did not return and may be among the dead. There “must have been 100 rounds fired,” according to the witness.

UPDATE 12:50: Multiple reports are coming in now with much larger numbers of fatalities. CNN is reporting “close to 20″ killed, with at least 10 of those children. CBS says 27 are dead, 14 of which are children.

Here is the NBC report.
