A mass shooting at a school has left a staggering death toll and a town in crisis after a gunman opened fire in Newtown, Connecticut Friday. With at least 28 dead, the Sandy Hook School Elementary shooting was worse than Columbine.

Among the dead Friday were six adults who were at the school, 20 children, the gunman and his mother.

Reporters are identifying 20-year-old Adam Lanza as the suspect. Lanza’s mother was a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The suspect’s older brother, Ryan, was taken into police custody in Hoboken, New Jersey.
