As witnesses recount the horrific crime at Sandy Hook Elementary, one constant is emerging: Even more children would have been killed had it not been for the actions of teachers, a custodian and even the students themselves.
Connecticut authorities said Saturday they have finished the heart-wrenching task of identifying and removing the bodies of 20 children and six adults massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Police were scheduled to hold a news briefing as new details about the Newtown slaughter were emerging.
After fatally shooting his mother in the face at her home, gunman Adam Lanza apparently shot his way into the 600-student school – then executed the children at close range, several officials told NBC News.
