I already know the answer to that.
    No shit. I heard that too. I can only imagine parents that can't track down their kids are losing their minds.

    One thing that was hard for me as a parent was as my daughter got older I lost more control - over her surroundings, he friends, who she interacted with. An enviroment like a grade school was a place where I could have peace of mind as to her well being.

    **** the media. Now they're saying "close to 20 including at least 10". Quit trying to out report your competitor and report only facts instead of hearsay. Secondly quit trying to interview kids. They've been through enough shit today. Ok rant over....for now

    You can't help but put your chidlren's face on these children when you read stories like this. No parent should outlive their child.

    Now they're saying that an entire kindergarten class is unaccounted for AFTER the shooting. This is insane.

    Fox has been reporting that a kindergarten class was the site of the shooting. WTF.

    Press conference from Law enforcement delayed from 1 to somewhere within the hour......... and CNN and NBC just reported that they have arrested another gunman. Seems like there are two gunman but still a lot of stories flying around.

    2 gunmen just doesn't make sense. A crazed lone gunman is, sadly, expected. But two people that go into a kindergarten and just start shooting. Makes no sense at all. I hope this second gunman stays alive long enough to help us understand their thought process of why they would do such a horrible, horrible thing.

    They're saying one of the gunmen is confirmed as a 20 year old male. Again, makes no sense at all.

    I wonder if it wasn't some child custody thing. I've seen guys go crazy because of not getting to see their kids. Obviously not to this extreme, but maybe.

    I'm just trying to wrap my mind around why a male that young would do this.

    OMG these reporters are ****s. Listening to HLN on XM. They flip to a ABC reporter who was interviewing a father of one of the kids who made it out. After he gives the run down, the reporter says we're hearing reports of 27 dead, 18 kids. The dad breaks down. What was the reporter thinking? I bet I can get a grown man to cry to make good TV.

    The exact age of the person is rather irrelevant when compared to the more important issues currently being faced.

    The age of the gunman if in their early 20's is very curious and something that is going to be discussed in this thread.

    Obviously my heart goes out to the parents, but I can't imagine what the first responders are going through.

    What's sad for me is that this kind of thing doesn't even shock me anymore. OKC, Columbine, 9/11, friends lost in Iraq - I'm numb to this.

    Reporters have absolutely no business interviewing families of victims or victims at the scene of a crime. They only have ratings in mind, not the well-being of the interviewee.


    I am dealing with a work emergency of my own; without having to read the whole thread… We know the shooter was an adult person? Not a child?

    Yes shooter is said to be a 20-24 year old. Possible second shooter.

    Agree with you about the reporters. On the link I provided earlier, a CNN reporter interviews a student who is about 8 years old.
