SHOTLIST:POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYNewtown, Connecticut - December 14, 20121. SOUNDBITE: Gov. Dan Malloy/(D) Connecticut"you can never be prepared for this kind of incident. What has happened, what has transpired at that school building will leave a mark on this community and every family impacted. I only ask that all of our fellow citizens here in the united states and around the world who've already offered their assistance remember all of the victims in their prayers. To all of you in the media, we'll do our best to keep you as informed as we can.//Earlier today a number of our citizens, beautiful children, had their life taken away from them as well as adults who's responsibility it was to educate and supervise those children. The perpetrator of the crime is dead. As is an individual who the perpetrator lived with."2. SOUNDBITE: Lt. Paul Vance/Connecticut state police spokesman"as has been reported, there were fatalities. 18 children were pronounced dead at the school, there were 2 that were transported to area hospitals and pronounced dead at area hospitals. And there were 6 adults pronounced dead at the scene. As the governor reported, the shooter is deceased in the school. There's a great deal of working going on relative to that. That's why we haven't identified him yet. The scene has been secured. Police have responded and working with several agencies to process the scene."STORYLINE:Police say 27 people were killed in the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, including the gunman, and one person died at another scene. The dead at the school include 18 children. The gunman opened fire Friday morning inside a school where his mother worked. He blasted his way through the building as young students cowered helplessly in classrooms while their teachers and classmates were shot. The gunman killed himself. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says someone who lived with him also died. Young students crying and looking frightened were escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line after the shots rang out in Newtown, 60 miles northeast of New York City. The attack comes less than two weeks before Christmas and appears to be the nation's second-deadliest school shooting, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007.
