Names of students and teachers killed in Connecticut school shooting released


My thought of the day is dedicated to the victims and families affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. I cannot fathom the pain of these families. My heart hurts for them as well as the students and faculty that survived the horrible incident. They will forever be scarred by the events of that day. The innocence of the children who witnessed the tragedy may be gone forever. Below you will see the names of the 20 children and 6 adults that were murdered that day. Each child killed had anywhere between 3-11 gunshot wounds. RIP

EMILY FELDMAN 12/15/2012 6:42 PM

The names of the 26 victims gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Friday were released Saturday afternoon. Most of the 20 children killed in the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history were first-graders, the state’s chief medical examiner said. All had died of multiple gunshots wounds, and the seven he personally examined had been hit with between three and 11 bullets a piece.”I’ve been at this for a third of the century,” Dr. H. Wayne Carver said, “and … this is probably the worst that I have seen or the worst that I know of any of my colleagues having seen.”The medical examiners’ office provided photos of the victims to families, rather than having families come to identify the bodies in person. “It’s easier on the families when you do that,” Carver said.Eighteen females and seven males were killed in the attack. Sixteen of the children were 6 years old, while four were 7.
