A killer’s deadly rampage through a Connecticut elementary school sent shockwaves through the United States and the world Friday, and left many all over the country asking the same question: Could this unimaginable tragedy occur in our schools?

Little light has been shed on what triggered 20-year-old Adam Lanza to carry out the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. What is known is that the man, after murdering his mother in their Newtown, Ct. home, stormed into nearby Sandy Hook Elementary through a secure door – part of the school’s security system that is far more sophisticated than most in the country, including all in Dixon – and used a high-powered rifle to kill 20 small children and six adults before turning the gun on himself.
