The world is still reeling from the effects of Friday’s tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

As people gathered for noon mass at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Newton, Connecticut, it appears even they couldn’t catch a break.

A threat was phone in to the church, which sits about a mile away from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The priest claims the voice on the other end of the line said, “I’m coming to kill, I”m coming to kill.”

A SWAT team arrived as members of the church evacuated. Shortly thereafter, police gave the all clear. Fortunately, no on was hurt though probably shaken up to say the least.

Get this, reports say that the shooter, Adam Lanza and his mother used to attend this church. There’s more. Indiana police say 60-year-old Von I. Meyer threatened to set his wife on fire after she fell asleep early Friday morning. According to police, Meyer says he planned to go to a nearby Elementary School and kill as many people as he cold before the police could stop him.
