Connecticut to ring bells for Sandy Hook victims

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Bells across Connecticut will ring 26 times to remember the 26 innocent victims tragically killed when a gunman opened fire in Newtown.

The bells will ring at exactly 9:30 a.m. Friday, that's the moment Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and went on his killing spree one week ago.

The killer's mother, Nancy Lanza, was laid to rest Thursday in a private ceremony.

"I hope the healing can begin for this community,” said Lisa Lowry. “It is going to be a long haul and changes have to be made"

For the fifth straight day, there will be more funerals, three for students and two for Sandy Hook staff members.
