Newtown - A shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut has been reported and witnesses say multiple ambulances have responded, according to NBC News report.
Although reports are sketchy, The Newtown Bee reported that a police officer was spotted carrying an apparently injured child from the school grounds.
Students, “some crying, some holding hands,” were escorted from the school by police and teachers. They were taken to a staging area where their parents could pick them up, according to the Hartford Courant.
Meanwhile, NBC Connecticut reported that the entire school district was in lockdown.
NBC News reported that a man reached by phone across the street from the school said that he saw three ambulances arrive at the scene and then leave.
The school located in Newtown has about 600 students and is about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 80 miles northeast of New York City.
Connecticut has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation.
**UPDATE***
At least 25 people, including children, were shot and killed at a Connecticut elementary school on Friday, law-enforcement officials with knowledge of the matter said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
