8-year-old says teacher saved him

An eight-year-old student described how a teacher saved him from bullets at his Newtown, Conn., elementary school Friday morning, where at least 27 people were killed by a gunman.

The student told WCBS-TV’s Lou Young he was on the way to the school’s office when he saw bullets.

“I saw some of the bullets going down the hall that I was right next to and then a teacher pulled me into her classroom,” the student said.
