HARTFORD, Conn. (December 17, 2012)—Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is calling for a moment of silence and for churches to ring bells Friday, exactly one week after the shooting at an elementary school.
Authorities say Adam Lanza, 20, shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday in Newtown, Conn., and then gunned down 26 people, including 20 children.
He also killed his mother before the school attack, and later killed himself.
Malloy asked churches ring bells 26 times Friday to honor the victims.
