Governor Deval Patrick said Friday that he had checked in with the office of Governor Dannel P. Malloy of Connecticut after the school massacre in Newtown “to make sure that he knows that we here in Massachusetts, and I personally, am thinking about him, and about all of the victims and their families of what, by all early ­accounts, is a pretty horrific act of violence.”

“If there is law enforcement assistance, investigative assistance, that they need and we can provide, I’m sure we would be eager to do so,” Patrick said.
