    This just makes me sick to my stomach, reports of 27 dead including 18 children.

    As a parent this is just beyond horrifying, thoughts and prayers to everyone who lost a loved one especially to the parents who lost a child.

    This is heartbreaking. What kind of monster walks into a building full of children and opens fire?
    My prayers are with the students and faculty of the school and their families.

    HOLY SH*T! It may be possible that the gunman was the *FATHER* of one of the children.

    "Just heard about the shooting and wanted to tell you that I love you."

    My prayers go out to all those connected with that Elementary school, including the surviving children that now has to cope with this.

    Latest news from CNN:

    [Updated at 2:11 p.m. ET] CNN's Susan Candiotti has just reported that a law enforcement official tells her the suspect is named Ryan Lanza and he is in his 20s.

    [Updated at 2:09 p.m. ET] We're hearing even more devastating news out of Newtown, Connecticut. CNN's Susan Candiotti has been told that 18 to 20 of the dead are children.

    I am at lost for words. How could someone do this, much less to children? My thoughts a prayers are out to everyone involved, especially parents of the children who died.

    Not much gets me sick to my stomach, but this sure did it.

    Latest news is that the shooter's mother was a teacher there and some of the victims were children in the mother's class. Just crazy... I'm so sad.

    This is just disgusting. I have a five (soon to be six) year old cousin, and my mom works at a school as an aid. I cannot imagine...this breaks my heart and make me mad at the same time.

    I live less than 15 minutes away from the school, and it's been a truly awful day. I can't even believe to think that in Newtown (one of the safest places I know of) something horrible like this could happen. People at my school went there for elementary school, they knew the families, one girl was family friends with the killer; everyone is so upset and so saddened by the event. It's such a terrible thing to happen, especially right before the holidays. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the friends and families of the victims.
