A shooting at a Connecticut elementary school today left 26 people dead, including children and adults, according to reports.

Twenty-six people were killed, including 18 children, the Associated Press reported, citing an official. The gunman was also dead. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way.

At a brief news conference this afternoon, a Connecticut State Police official said the gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown was killed. "The shooter is deceased inside the building," said police Lt. Paul Vance.

A source told the Associated Press that the suspect is 24 years old and that his younger brother is being held.

Many of the shootings took place in a kindergarten classroom, sources told the Hartford Courant. One entire classroom is unaccounted for, sources said.
