NEWTOWN, Conn. - Days after a gunman opened fire on dozens of people inside a Newton, Conn. elementary school, the first two funerals were held for victims Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner, both 6 years old. Meanwhile, investigators are fervently seeking a motive behind the shooting.
Authorities say Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, with her own gun before heading to Sandy Hook Elementary School and opening fire, killing 20 children and six other adults.
Police say Lanza was armed with an assault-type weapon and two handguns. He also carried enough ammo to kill nearly every child in the school, officials say.

According to officials, the school will remain closed for the foreseeable future as it remains an active crime scene. Students at other Newton schools are expected to return to class tomorrow. Students at Sandy Hook will be relocated to a building in a neighboring district, but school administrators say they are unsure when those students will return to class.
Police say they hope to interview two unidentified adults who were injured in the shooting in hopes of reconstructing the events during the massacre.
