Sandy Hook student victims were first-graders
NEWTOWN (WKTV) - The 20 children and six adults killed in the Newtown school massacre were all shot multiple times, many with a rifle, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner said Saturday.
The children – 12 girls and eight boys – were all 6 or 7 years old, Dr. H. Wayne Carver said at an afternoon news briefing.
“This is a very devastating set of injuries,” Carver said. “I believe everyone was hit more than once.”
He said all the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary died of gunshot wounds and all the deaths have been classified as homicides.
