School shooting reported in Newtown, Conn.

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Connecticut State Police say they are assisting local police in Newtown in response to reports of a shooting at an elementary school.

A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps says a teacher has been shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital, but it's unclear if that's the only injury.

The superintendent's office says the district has locked down schools.

The shooting was reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, in western Connecticut. State police say Newtown police called them at about 9:40 a.m. about the reports.

The Newtown Bee newspaper (http://bit.ly/J4eUyR) posted a photo of a group of young students — some crying, others looking visibly frightened — being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other's shoulders.
