Newtown Plans Quiet Anniversary Of School Shooting

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Newtown plans to mark on year since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting with memorial services and the ringing of bells for the victims.

Gov. Dannel Malloy asked houses of worship to ring their bells 26 times — once for each of the victims killed inside Sandy Hook.

Newtown officials asked for privacy and joined victims’ families Monday in calling for people to mark the anniversary by performing acts of kindness or volunteering with charities. The town had no formal events planned for Saturday, and officials discouraged the news media from coming to Newtown.

Gunman Adam Lanza killed his mother inside their Newtown home before driving to the school where he carried out his rampage. He killed himself as police arrived.
