Newtown, CT - The victims in the Connecticut school shooting all were shot more than once, the state medical examiner said on Saturday.

The victims died of gunshot wounds and have been classified as homicides, said H. Wayne Carver, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner. Twenty-eight people died in the massacre, including 20 students and six adults and the school, a woman at a nearby site and the gunman himself.

The gunman used a rifle as his primary weapon, Carver said.

Each of the bodies Carver examined were shot three to 11 times, and all the victims were shot multiple times, he said. He said he did seven of the autopsies.

He said the children he examined were wearing “cute kid stuff.”

The gunman killed himself in the shooting on Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, authorities said.

We hear that Noah Pozner is Jewish and Chesed Shel Emes advocated and enabled for a prevention of an autopsy. Yehi Zichro Boruch. May his family know that Klal Yisroel is mourning along with them. May they have Nechama and see nachas and be strengthened. May all families affected by this awful tragedy be comforted as we feel their pain

Al those children wsere "mishelanu" -- "from us," unless you insist on placing non-Jews beyond the pale. These children were all members of the human family with neshomos (I know there are some among us who believe most of the human race have no neshomos, but this is such a perversion of historical Judaism that I won't even respond here). It's beyond disgusting that already Jews like you are counting and dividing. Are you any more or less heartbroken when you see a non-Jewish father tearfully describing his beautiful little girl who was killed? I've viewed several webites tonight catering to different ethnic and religious communities and nowhere else did anyone care about or bring up the backgrounds of the victims. What is wrong with us? We put ourselves outside the human tzibbur when something like this happens and we seem to only want to know if any of "us" were amomg the victims. For shame.

Your'e getting a little......or rather a lot, carried away. No one is implying anything other then to point out that there were a few yidden that were killed in this horrific tragedy. And maybe it does have more significance in so much that we may know them or a relative of a victim etc. But no one is suggesting that it's any less horrendous just because it may have been someone who is from a different religion.
