U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) released the following statement today after a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.:

"My heart breaks for the countless parents, families, friends, and everyone affected by today's tragedy in the Newtown community. This is a parent's worst nightmare that they would send their child to school in the morning and they would not return at the end of the day. It is agonizing that so many young, innocent lives ended in such a senseless, violent way. As a mother of school-aged children, my thoughts and prayers are with Newtown and the families of Sandy Hook Elementary as they grieve over this incomprehensible loss, and we will continue to stand with them in the days and weeks ahead."
