Newtown, Conn., Remains In Shock, Horror After School Massacre « CBS New York

“Sandy Hook School – caller is indicating she thinks there’s someone shooting in the building,” a 911 dispatcher said.

But chaos soon turned to heartbreak when the scope of the tragedy came out.

“I just don’t get how somebody could hurt innocent children — I just don’t get that,” a woman said. “What did those poor babies do to you?”

Authorities said Lanza firs shot and killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, who some reports said taught at the school. She was found dead Friday in her Newtown home.

Afterward, Lanza drove his mother’s car to the school, where he opened fire. Officials said he headed directly for a specific section of the school, killing students in two classrooms.

It was not known Saturday morning how many rounds he fired, but both guns are capable of carrying high-capacity extended clips that can hold up to 30 rounds.

Near the start of the massacre around 9 a.m. Friday, an 8-year-old boy faced bullets in a hallway as he tried to deliver attendance reports to the principal’s office. He described what he saw to CBS 2’s Lou Young.
