Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) released a statement about the tragic school shooting that took place on Friday in Newtown, Conn., calling it "incomprehensible."

"We are all heartbroken by the senseless shooting today in Newtown, Connecticut," said Landrieu. "The magnitude of this tragedy is incomprehensible, with so many innocent lives lost. To the families and community of Sandy Hook Elementary – we share in your grief, and hold you up in our prayers."

Landrieu, who is the mother of two children, also tweeted a more personal message about Friday's shooting.

Adam Lanza, 20, killed himself following a shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 26 people, including 20 children, dead. He also shot and killed his mother Nancy at her home in Connecticut prior to the rampage.

A list of the victims' names is expected to be released shortly.
