Congress: Shooting was 'massacre,' 'senseless tragedy'

(U.S News) Speaker of the House John Boehner, ordered the flags at the U.S. Capitol to be lowered to half-mast Friday after 20 children and 6 adults were shot and killed at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

The White House said Friday this was not a day to discuss policy, but some in Congress were calling for action.
