7 Lessons Learned from the Sandy Hook School Shooting

6. Sandy Hook principal probably didn’t have a chance to fight back.

While early media statements indicated that the school principal attempted to disarm the shooter, buying precious time and saving lives of students and staff, no such information is included in this report. The report states that the principal and two other staff members went into the hall to investigate and were quickly shot.

Although the full report could provide more detail, the lack of such information at least raises questions as to whether or not the principal actually attempted to attack the shooter. The report also doesn’t indicate if this alleged action had any bearing on the outcome of the attack.
