Newtown Plans Burials As School’s Future Debated

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) – A grieving Connecticut town is bracing itself for the first funerals for victims of the school shooting last week that left 20 children and six adults dead.

Officials in Newtown are also debating when classes could resume – and where, given the carnage in the building and the children’s associations with it. The funerals come a day after President Barack Obama pledged to seek change in memory of the victims. The district is considering sending surviving students to a former school building in a neighboring town.

The gunman was 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Authorities said Sunday he was carrying hundreds of rounds of especially deadly ammunition, enough to kill just about every student in the school if given time. His motive remains unclear. He killed his mother before heading to the school and committed suicide as police closed in.
