The Newtown Patch is continuing to report on this morning's incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in which a gunman killed 26 people - including 18 children - and himself at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Dr. Nicholas Fischer, superintendent of the New London Public Schools, said counselors and psychologists will be available to students on Monday to discuss the shooting. These specialists will be available in all of the district's schools.

According to the Connecticut College Student Government Association page on Facebook, students at the campus are organizing a candlelight vigil at Tempel Green to take place at 8:30 p.m.

Gov. Dannel Malloy has ordered Connecticut and U.S. flags to be lowered to half staff in the wake of the tragedy. Flags will be kept at half staff until the burial of the victims.

Innocent lives lost in a matter of seconds. Someones life is forever changed, and a family will never again be the same. My heart goes out to the families and friends of those effected by the Newtown shooting. May Gods grace and comfort hold you up.
