No ceremonies in Newtown for shooting anniversary

No public memorial events are planned in Newtown as the community marks the second anniversary of the shooting rampage that left 20 children and six educators dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
    
Town officials say it will be a day of private reflection and remembrance.
    
First Selectman Pat Llodra and school Superintendent Joseph Erardi said in a public letter that the community’s recovery has been a “challenging journey, filled with days of joyful hope and occasional dips of despair.”
    
A troubled 20-year-old gunman shot his way into the school on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. He shot and killed his mother before driving to the school and committed suicide as police arrived on the scene.
