Newtown School Shootings: Syfy Pulls ‘Haven’ Episode Due to School Violence Portrayal

"Haven" episode that depicts a killer at a high-school reunion is pulled from schedule

Syfy has pulled tonight's episode of its supernatural drama "Haven" in the wake of the horrifying school shootings in Newtown, Conn., that left at least 28 people dead Friday, because it depicts school violence.

"Tonight’s scheduled 10 p.m. episode of 'Haven' contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school," a Syfy spokesman told TheWrap in a statement. "In light of today’s tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it."
