At one memorial on Church Hill Road, 26 votive bags, each containing a candle, have been set up amid flowers and stuffed animals left as tributes to the 20 children and 6 adults who were shot and killed.

Robert Parker, whose 6-year-old daughter, Emilie, was killed, released a statement last night on the incident and urged everyone to remain loving and compassionate towards each other.
