(Reuters) - A heavily armed gunman opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school on Friday, killing 26 people, including 20 children, police said, in one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history.

The gunman - who according to a media report carried four weapons and wore a bullet-proof vest - was dead inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, state police Lieutenant Paul Vance told a news conference.

Vance said authorities found 18 children and seven adults, including the gunman, dead at the school, and two children were pronounced dead later at a hospital. Another adult was found dead at a related crime scene in Newtown, he said, bringing the toll to 28.

The New York Times reported that the gunman, believed to be in his 20s, walked into a classroom where his mother was a teacher, shot his mother and then 18 students in the room before shooting five other adults and killing himself.

Жуть кромешная.
Видимо, некоторые психи должны сидеть в соответствующем заведении, а не разгуливать по улицам. Но у психов есть права, в том числе The right to refuse any treatment the patient considers harmful (http://www.cchr.org/about-us/mental-health-declaration-of-human-rights.html).
Стало быть, защититься от них невозможно.
