Because things aren't hard enough right now in Newtown, Connecticut, the 12 p.m. mass at St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church was interrupted and people were evacuated after a "credible threat" was called in. A monsignor at the church told Ora.TV that a man had called the church and said, “I'm coming to kill, I'm coming to kill.”

After the call came in around 11:30 a.m., the police were summoned, and the monsignor added, “The more this man was speaking the more the police were taking seriously." Adam Gabbatt of the Guardian UK, who was at the church, tweeted about the surreal scene as more than 10 police cars and a heavy duty police vehicle arrived at the scene: "One of the men in camouflage fatigues was carrying a large heavy duty shield. All had what appeared to be assault rifles." According to the Times, the church is still on lockdown as of 1:30 p.m.

Update: The Washington Post adds this account of the threatening phone call the church received this morning:

Around noon, someone called the church phone, and said, “I’m going to kill everyone there. My friend didn’t finish the job.” Church officials tried to keep the caller on the line, asking him to repeat himself. He did, making the same threat in the same words.

They also note that on Saturday, St. Rose had put up posters for parishoners to express their grief, but one person wrote, “This is just round one.” The church remains closed, and evening mass has been cancelled.
