CT Community Buries First Shooting Victims [VIDEO]

Two victims of Friday’s school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School have been laid to rest, the first in a long line of funerals in a community still trying to cope with the tragedy.

FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports from Newtown, Connecticut:

Audio clip:

At a makeshift memorial near the school, children are decorating Christmas trees and leaving teddy bears and notes.  One note addressed to the families read, “We are grieving with you.  You are in our hearts and prayers.  We love you and we support you.”

Two families really needing that love are the parents of Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto, the first of the children to be laid to rest, while others who live here in this town want the world to know they do feel the love.

(Newtown Resident) “We really appreciate it, and it’s just…it’s good to know that people are out there thinking about us, and trying their best to help us.”

Sunday night, President Obama spoke at an interfaith memorial service in Newtown to honor the victims of Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy and Jeff Monosso report from Newtown, Connecticut:

Audio clip:

I’m Courtney Kealy at the Newtown High School prayer vigil in Newtown, Connecticut where President Barack Obama addressed a grieving community here as well as a mourning nation.

(Obama) “Mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow, nor can they heal your wounded hearts.”

The interfaith prayer vigil held with the community struggling with their deep anguish over the killings of 20 children no older than seven-years-old, six teachers as well as the gunman’s mother.

An elementary school should never be a crime scene, but this one is. And investigators continue working here to find some answers as to why. Police did tell us over the weekend that evidence found in the gunman’s home my give us a look into the mind of 20-year-old Adam Lanza.

(Police) “And hopefully painting a complete picture as to how, and more importantly, why this occurred.”

Federal investigators are also on scene visiting shooting ranges and looking into the exact history of the guns used in the massacre.
