NEWTOWN, Conn. (WPRI) — It’s been 10 years since 20 first graders and six educators were killed during a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

It was America’s deadliest grade school shooting. The gunman took his own life at the scene.

Gov. Ned Lamont has directed all flags in the state to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset in honor of the victims.

A wreath-laying ceremony will be held Wednesday morning at the new memorial that just opened near the new elementary school last month.
