A very interesting article has been found with some of the missing pieces of the puzzle intwined into it regarding the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that took place on December 14, 2012.

The article originally posted by the Daily Mail the morning of the shooting was discovered to have been pulled and redirected, as reported previously by dev-test.intellihub.com.

The following is the article entitled, “TWENTY SEVEN shot dead including 18 children and principal at Connecticut elementary as student’s father armed with two handguns commits worst school shooting in American history” as it was originally posted by Daily Mail then pulled on the day of the shooting.

The cashed version of the original Daily Mail article reposted on ArizonaLatinos.com reads;

  • The shooter – believed to be 24-years-old  from New Jersey – is confirmed dead
  • Second gunman now in custody
  • One entire classroom is unaccounted for,  sources said
  • One teacher said masked gunman started  firing out shots from kindergarten classroom shortly after 9.30am
  • One student said there were bullets whizzing by him in the hallway
  • At least 100 rounds are believed to have  been fired
  • Female principal is believed to have been  targeted
  • At least three seriously injured in  hospital
  • Two handguns found at the  scene
 At least 27 people are dead – including 18  children – after a gunman believed to be a student’s father opened fire today at  an elementary school in Connecticut.

Police were dispatched to Sandy Hook  Elementary School in Newtown after they received reports of shots being fired by  a gunman in one of the kindergarten classrooms of the school at  9.41am.

There are preliminary reports a student’s father, who is believed to be 24-years-old and from New Jersey, was the shooter.  He was wearing a bulletproof vest and had four guns.

He was killed at the scene though it is unclear if he shot himself or was brought down by an officer.

A second man who was seen running from the  scene right after the shooting was taken into custody a few hours later.

One mother told CBS that her child said there were  bullets ‘whizzing by’ him in the hallway and that a teacher pulled him into a  classroom.

Terrified parents rushed to the school  desperately trying to reach their children as hundreds of officers  swarmed  over the school.

The  shooting is the latest in a series of high-profile gun crimes in American  schools and colleges, that is especially shocking given the age of the  students involved

Speaking with MSNBC, one mother said she had  heard the principal had been shot dead.

‘The principal was killed and some other people were shot,’ the unidentified woman said outside the school.

Her daughter added: ‘Miss Martin closed the door and we went into the corner’, before the gunman let out ‘lots of  shots’.

Hundreds of officers, sniffer dogs, and firefighters  patrol the streets outside Sandy Hook Elementary School to secure the area

Dawn Hochsprung, 47, has been the principal  at Sandy Hook Elementary school since July 2010.[

One teacher is confirmed to have been shot in the foot and is being treated at a local hospital.

The mayor said they are not releasing names until next of kin have been notified.

Two handguns have been recovered at the scene and police have cordoned off a black Honda believed to belong to the dead  shooter.

There are said to be a number of people with injuries. At least three are being treated at a local hospital.

It is unclear if the shooter shot himself or was killed by an officer.

Hundreds of officers and police dogs had the  area surrounded as they worked to secure the scene.

Teachers and students were said to be in  morning meetings when the shots were  fired. The children were locked inside  their classrooms until police  came and evacuated them to a nearby fire  station.

One child was seen being carried from the  school by a police officer, apparently seriously wounded.

A person in one room had ‘numerous gunshot  wounds’, police told the The Hartford  Courant.

Frantic parents were rushing to the school as  they were advised to go to the  nearby fire station with ID to pick up their  children.

A witness told News8 he saw one child with a  bloodied face and another with a hand injury.

The school has about 600 students.

President Obama was first notified of the  shooting at a Connecticut elementary school at 10:30am , White House press  secretary Jay Carney said.

The president has been receiving updates and  will continue to throughout the day, Carney added.

‘If we get more information and as we get  more information, we’ll certainly provide it to you. The president as a father  and I as a father certainly … feel enormous sympathy for families that are  affected and to do everything we can to support state and local law enforcement,  to support those who are enduring what appears to be a very tragic  event.’

First Selectman Pat Llodra told Patch that  there is no information being released about the victims — only confirming that  there was a shooting.

‘I’m horrified, saddened and shocked that  this happened in Newtown,’ Llodra  said. ‘Our priorities right now are making  sure everyone safe and  reuniting parents with their children.’

One mother of an eight-year-old girl at the  school, Brenda Lebinski, told Patch that her daughter is safe thanks to one  teacher’s decision to move all kids into a closet when a gunman had entered the  building.

Mrs Lebinski said that she had spoken to her  daughter’s teacher who was in the school at the time of the shooting, and that a  masked gunman had shot adults in the school.

‘My daughter’s teacher is my hero,’ Lebinski  said. ‘She locked all the kids in a closet and that saved their  lives.’

Teachers and students were said to be in morning  meetings when the shots were fired. The children were locked inside their  classrooms until police came and evacuated them to a nearby fire station

As well as police and firefighters, there were reports  that a bomb squad was being called into the school. A helicopter was also flying  over the scene

There are unconfirmed reports of two shooters, one is  believed to be dead and the other still at large

There were reports of frantic parents rushing to the school though officials are telling them to stay at home by the phone.

 Sandy Hook Elementary  School is located on Dickinson Drive in Newtown, Connecticut

SECURITY MEASURES CAN’T  PREVENT ANOTHER U.S. SCHOOL SHOOTING

 American public schools use  a variety of security measures to protect students and staff.

Almost 94 per cent of U.S.  elementary schools lock their doors during the school day to restrict access to  campuses.

Some 84 per cent of high  schools, 73 per cent of middle schools, and 51 per cent of elementary schools  use security cameras to monitor their schools, according to the U.S. Department  of Education.

Increasing numbers of  security guards are in place at U.S. public schools as a result of gun crime  with metal detectors also in use across the country.

Yet despite security  measures school shootings in America are still common place.

On February 10 2012 a  14-year-old from New Hampshire called Hunter Mack shot himself in the face at  Walpole Elementary School cafeteria.

Two weeks later student  T.J. Lane, 17, allegedly opened fire at Chardon High School, Ohio, killing two  and injuring three.

Seven were killed and 10  injured at a shooting at Oikos University, in Oakland, California on 2 April.  One L. Goh, 43, a Korean national surrendered to police.

Police arrested 15-year-old  Robert Gladden and charged him as an adult after a student opened fire on the  first day of school, at Perry Hall High School, Baltimore, in August. The  15-year-old allegedly opened fire before being rushed by  teachers.

Teachers again stopped a  shooter on September 7 when a 14-year-old was tackled to the floor after  shooting at the ceiling at Normal Community High School,  Illinois.

On September 26 eight  grader Cade Poulos killed himself at Stillwater Junior High School in  Oklahoma.
