SHOTLIST:AP - AP Clients OnlyNewtown, ConnecticutSOUNDBITE: Gene Rosen/Lives near Sandy Hook Elementary School: "I thought I heard some gun shots, and sometimes I hear a deer hunter shooting and it's 'Boom, boom' but these were very staccato shots. They were very quick. And I thought, 'how obnoxious. Why would a hunter do that?' but I didn't think much of it. I really didn't. ""And I walked outside right there and I looked down here (crying). 6 children they were sitting there, and I had no idea why they were there.""There was that school bus driver and she said there's been an incident, and I said just come in the house, and that's how it started. I brought them in the house.""And then over the next 30 minutes, they just described what happened. Little by little. And these 2 boys kept saying, 'We can't go back to school. We can't go back to school. Our teacher is dead. Mrs. Soto-- we don't have a teacher. (crying) And I couldn't believe it. I couldn't take that in. (crying)""A woman came to my house at 12 o'clock. Her face looked frozen in terror. I've never seen a face look like that. 'And she said, is my boy here? I heard there were 6 kids here.' And she said the name of the child. I thought if she'd been to the Sandy Hook school, she thought maybe a miracle from God would have the child at my house. And I looked at the casualty list at 6 o'clock (crying) and his name was on it."STORYLINE:Gene Rosen had finished feeding his cats at his home near the Sandy Hook Elementary school and was heading to a diner when he saw six small children sitting in a neat semicircle at the end of his driveway, a school bus driver standing over them, telling them things would be all right. It was about 9:30 a.m., and the children, he quickly discovered, had just run from the school, among the first to escape Friday's deadly shooting. "We can't go back to school," Rosen, his voice choking, recounted one little boy telling him matter of factly. "Our teacher is dead."
