More than two dozen people, mostly elementary school children, were shot and killed at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school this morning, federal and state sources tell ABC News.

The massacre involved two gunmen and prompted the town of Newtown to lock down all of its schools and draw SWAT teams to the school, authorities said today.

One shooter is dead and a manhunt is on for a second gunman. Police are searching cars. One shooter was described as a 24-year-old armed with four weapons and wearing a bullet vest, sources told ABC News.

It's unclear how many people have been shot, but 27 people, mostly children are dead, multiple federal and state sources tell ABC News. That number could rise, officials said.

President Obama was briefed on the shooting by FBI Director Bob Mueller.

It is the worst shooting in a U.S. elementary school in recent memory and exceeds the carnage at 1999 Coumbine High School shooting in which 13 died and 24 were injured.

The Newtown shooting comes just three days after masked gunman Jacob Roberts opened fire in a busy Oregon, mall killing two before turning the gun on himself.

Today's shooting occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, which includes 450 students in grades from kindergarten through fourth grade. The town is located about 12 miles east of Danbury.

Another sad and horrific gun shooting. Now let's hear from the Topix crazies about how conceal and carry would have saved the day. I am sure Unincorporated, Neighbor or Professor would have saved everyone. Let's hear from the ones that blame the victims. Come on Topix people don't disappoint.

No it's not another sad and horrific gun shooting. It's the sick person/people that perpetrate tragedies like this. All the anti-gun laws in Chicago haven't stopped the violence, has it?

My heart goes out to the families in Connecticut. I will reserve my judgment for pathetic people like you who bottom feed for controversy while the victims bodies are still warm.

Typical of Jack and Des Plaines. How about showing a little respect for the victims instead of trying to instigate a debate with your nemesis'. Two losers.

You are one sad p.o.s. aren't you jack? Yes we know, guns are the cause of this and if they were illegal this would never have happened. Just like how people dont use cocaine, heroin, crack, meth, marijuana, etc, all because they are illegal. Just like how people dont get in their cars drunk and kill people in crashes because that is illegal. Hell we should ban alcohol and to be safe maybe we ban cars too. Actually, i think illinois has had close to 1000 traffic deaths this year so we should definitely ban cars and driving.

Common sense jack. Criminals are criminals because they break the law. You can put all the gun laws in place that you want but bad people will still get them and do bad things. The problem is that our country has had a major shift in morals. Typically a persons faith drives their moral values. Well, in a country where religion is being constantly attacked like it is in the U.S., how do you expect people to act? And if you'd like to look at the erosion of our morals, look no further than your party. You know, the party that removed God from its platform. The same party that likes to challenge things like what a Christmas tree should be called. And yes, the same party that embraces all kinds of immoral behaviors such as homosexuality, abortions, etc. This is what you guys have created so stop trying to place blame anywhere else.

Anybody that wants to get up on this day and use this incident to support concealed carry is insane.

This was a tragedy of epic proportions. A lunatic entered a school and targeted a kindergarten class. This is not an event that should be used to support or oppose concealed carry.

May God have mercy and bring any peace possible to the those victims who have lost a child, parent or what have you. And may the healing process for the countless children victims who witnessed this madness come as quickly as possible.

You can support either side you wish on concealed carry, but when a mad man hell bent on destruction and armed to the teeth decides he is going on a rampage in a school, the results will always be tragic. Perhaps the only way to even begin to prevent or deter such tragedies is to have armed police officers at each school for the entire day. I dont know if there are any answers.

Hug your kids today and thank the good Lord that again today it was not our community and school that was targeted. Peace to all. Lets not let this tragedy be a platform for madness, but use our energy to pray for the victims.

Hey DesPlaines dumb ass...Norway has some of toughest firearm legislation in THE world.
Remember Anders Behring Breivik, the man charged with killing 77 people in Norway last year? Chicago, toughest in the country.. Leads in murders. Oh your right. Make guns illegal. The criminals would turn theirs in because they wouldn't want to go to jail for breaking the law.. Get your head out of your fat lib ass.

Like I said Topix crazies don't disappoint.

Go Go NRA!!! Guns don't shoot people, only people shoot people, especially five year old children. I am guessing all the weapons used were legal and the shooter had a FOID card.

How come when something like this happens we focus on gun control and the violence in the media Instead of focusing on finding and treating mental illnesses?

This was a horrific tragedy, but if it's not guns it's knife's as this case in China, where a man stabbed 22 elementry kids today.

You have to blame the criminal and not the device they used!

Only normal people today undertand the nature of today's violence. Unfortunatly today violence will go down as some of the worst ever. We are living in a ever growing violent world and it's promoted everywhere.I'm not gun owner but just think about it. If a teacher or school rep had a license to conceal and carry and had a weapon,then maybe the devestation and death could have been minimized. It's clear that a kid blew-up but don't blame the gun. You can stick an ace of clubs in someone if you throw it at them hard and fast so do you ban cards.
