Gov. Lynch Calls Shooting A Horrible Tragedy

New Hampshire's governor and governor-elect are expressing sympathy for the victims of a shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.

Gov. John Lynch called Friday's shooting a horrible tragedy that took many innocent lives. He said his prayers and thoughts go out to those who were wounded or killed and to their loved ones.

Gov.-elect Maggie Hassan called it "an unbelievable and senseless tragedy." She said her thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, families, students, teachers and entire community.

A gunman opened fire inside an elementary school where his mother worked, killing at least 26 people, including 20 children.
