A school teacher is believed to have thrown herself in front of her students to save them, before a gunman killed her, along with 26 others at a school in Connecticut.
First grade teacher, 27-year-old Victoria Soto was one of the eight adults reported to have been killed.
A list of the victims from the US school shooting has been published. Twenty students and six teachers were killed in the massacre.
The most disturbing feature of the rampage is what we do not know. We still have no idea why Adam Lanza acted with this cowardly savagery.
There are reports claiming that Adam Lanza went to the school a day before the massacre. They say he had a major confrontation with staff.
