Vice President Joe Biden was among the officials in Danbury on Thursday looking into ways to reduce gun violence in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy gathered with other officials on the steps of the town hall as the bell rang in memory of each life lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School one week ago.
The funerals for 7-year-old Grace McDonnell, 6-year-old Olivia Engel, 6-year-old Dylan Hockley, school psychologist Mary Sherlach and behavioral therapist Rachel D’Avino were held Friday.
Grace Audrey McDonnell’s grandmother said in a published report that her “girly-girl” loved playing dress-up with her jewelry and wearing pink.
