Police and ambulance, on December 14, 2012, at the scene from the aftermath of a school shooting at a Connecticut elementary school that brought police swarming into the leafy neighborhood, while other area schools were put under lock-down, police and local media said. At least 26 people, including 20 young children, were killed when a gunman assaulted a US primary school on Friday and another body was found dead at a second linked crime scene, police said.  Police spokesman Lieutenant Paul Vance told reporters that the attacker killed 20 children and six adults, including someone that he lived with, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  The gunman also died at the scene, and a 28th body was found elsewhere.   -    AFP PHOTO / Don EMMERT        (Photo credit should read DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images)
