NEWTOWN, Conn. >> Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he's spoken with federal officials who have offered to provide help to the state and the Newtown community in the aftermath of a deadly grade school shooting.

Malloy arrived in Newtown on this afternoon, hours after a shooting that left the gunman dead and at least one teacher wounded.

The shooter was killed and apparently had two guns.

The governor's office said several state agencies, including emergency management, public health and the Department of Children and Families, will be coordinating the state's response.

In addition, Malloy says State Police are coordinating law enforcement work with federal and local authorities.

It wasn't clear how many people were injured at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Danbury Hospital said it has admitted three patients.
