TRAGEDY STRIKES: Locals weigh-in on Connecticut shooting

December 15, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — The Connecticut massacre has touched the lives of people across the nation — even in Whitley County — 750 miles from the tragedy.

Before Columbia City High School’s boys basketball game Friday night, officials held a moment of silence in honor of the 26 lives lost after a gunman opened fire in an elementary school — killing 20 children.

The rampage is the nation’s second-deadliest school shooting, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech shooting that claimed 33 lives in 2007.
