MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker calls the Connecticut school shooting a tragedy that “takes your breath away.”

Walker paused to acknowledge the shooting that has left 27 people dead, 20 of them children.  Walker was in attendance at a Madison ceremony Friday honoring state utility workers who went to the Northeast to help make repairs in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Walker said he called the office of Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy to offer condolences.

He told reporters he doesn’t want to make judgments about what could be done to prevent similar mass shootings in the future, saying right now is the time to focus on the victims.
