The school shooting in Connecticut brings to mind another school shooting in the Chicago area.
Tom Shaer was the first reporter to arrive on the scene of the Dann shootings, a shooting that happened at a Winnetka in 1988.
On May 20, 1988, Laurie Dann shot six children at an elementary school, killing Nicholas Corwin, 8. She took hostages in a home, where she shot a college student before killing herself.
Shaer talked with WGN’s Mark Suppelsa about the similarities and differences between the Dann shootings and the shooting in Connecticut.
