If Milo Murphy’s Law had vine

The adults/teachers who were victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre

(1) Nancy Laza

Adam Lanza’s mother, who he had shot dead while she slept before he committed the massacre at the elementary school.

(2) Anne Marie Murphy

Anne Marie Murphy, a 52-year-old mother of four, died while trying to protect one of her students, Dylan Hockley. She was a teaching assistant at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

(3) Rachel D'Avino

Rachel D'Avino, 29, was a teacher’s aide at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where she died trying to shield one of her students. Those who knew the Bethlehem, Conn., woman said she loved her job and adored working with children. She was working toward becoming a board-certified behavior analyst and wanted to work with children who had autism.

(4) Victoria Soto

First grade teacher Victoria “Vicki” Soto, pictured here, died while saving her students from shooter Adam Lanza’s deadly rampage, which left 28 dead in one of the worst mass shootings in American history.Victoria Soto used her body to shield her students from the maniacal gunman who staged a massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on Dec. 14, 2012. “The family received information she was found shielding her students in a closet,” Soto’s cousin, Jim Wiltsie, told the Daily News. “She put herself between the gunman and her students.”

(5) Lauren Rousseau

Lauren Rousseau, 30, was one of the six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School shot by Lanza in one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history. As investigators try to piece together the massacre, Newtown is hailing these teachers as heroes.

(6) School principal Dawn Hochsprung

School principal Dawn Hochsprung was among those slain at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14, 2012. Hochsprung, the school’s psychologist and vice principal were meeting with a parent when they stepped out into a hallway upon hearing a noise, a parent told CNN. The principal and psychologist were killed,
and the vice principal was wounded. Hochsprung, 47, was a mother of two daughters and three stepdaughters and a longtime teacher in the Danbury school district.

(7) School psychologist Mary Sherlach

Mary Sherlach, 56, school psychologist at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was shot dead trying to save her students from gunman Adam Lanza. “She was always helpful, always upbeat,” said Sherlach’s son-in-law Eric Schwartz. “She was truly a nice woman, as kind as can be.” Sherlach worked at the school for two decades.

First post, so I’ll start it off with Adam’s movements on the day of the shooting, as depicted by this diagram. 

Sometime before the shooting, Adam shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, in the head four times with a .22-caliber Savage MK II-F bolt action rifle while she was sleeping in her bed. 

He then drove his black Honda Civic 5 miles (8 km) from his home, at 36 Yogananda St, Sandy Hook, CT, to Sandy Hook Elementary School, at 12 Dickenson Dr, Sandy Hook, CT. 

Adam entered the school at approximately 9:35 am, armed with a .223-caliber Bushmaster XM15-E2S rifle, a 9mm SIG Sauer P226 handgun, and a 10mm Glock 20SF handgun, shooting out the front windows at the entrance. An Izhmash Saiga-12 shotgun was later found in the trunk of his vehicle. 

Principal Dawn Hochsprung, and school psychologist Mary Sherlach were shot and killed by Lanza in the hallway after going to investigate the source of the gunshots, during the morning announcements. Teacher Natalie Hammond accompanied them and survived her injuries by crawling to a conference room (room 9.) Substitute teacher, Deborah Pisani was also injured, having been shot in the foot by a bullet that ricocheted down the hall. 

Adam Lanza entered the main office, not seeing school nurse, Sarah Cox, and school secretary, Barbara Halstead hiding under desks. Cox reported he walked in, stood for a few moments, then left. The two remained hiding in the first-aid supply closet for four hours, after calling 9-1-1. 

Music teacher Maryrose Kristopik claimed Lanza came up to her classroom, pounding on the door shouting, “Let me in!”

School library staff Yvonne Cech and Maryann Jacob hid eighteen students in the school library. Upon finding a door would not lock, they had the children crawl into a storage room, barricading it shut with filing cabinets. 

Teacher Kaitlin Roig and her fourteen students hid in the bathroom of her classroom (room 12.) It is believed Lanza passed her classroom by because she had left a black piece of construction paper over the window, from a previous lockdown drill, making the room appear empty.

Lanza made his way to substitute teacher Lauren Rousseau’s class (room 8,) who was aided by Rachel D’Avino. The class was comprised of sixteen first-graders, all but one were shot and killed, including the two teachers. One child survived the initial attack, but lated died at Danbury Hospital. One child survived the attack by playing dead in the corner. Most of the victims were found crowded together in the bathroom. The sole survivor claimed to hear a boy yell, "Help me! I don’t want to be here!“ to which Lanza responded, "Well, you’re here." 

Adam then went to Victoria Leigh Soto’s first-grade class (room 10.) There are several conflicting reports about what happened in this classroom. Some say Soto hid her students in closets, under desks, or in the bathroom. Others say the students were neatly seated in the back on the classroom. According to one survivor, no words were spoken between Lanza or the victims in the classroom and that they were in fact seated in the rear of the classroom. The child said Adam stared at them blankly for a while, even pointing his gun directly at the boy, holding his fire, and watching them. It is unknown if this is because his gun jammed. This story contradicts early reports saying Soto hid the children and told Lanza her class was in the auditorium. A total of eleven children from Soto’s class survived, nine fled the classroom, and two hid in the bathroom. Five children were shot and killed (one died at Danbury Hospital,) along with Victoria Soto and teacher’s aide, Anne Marie Murphy. It is still unknown what truly happened in this room. 

The final shot was heard at 9:40 am that was believed to be Lanza’s suicide. Adam shot himself in the lower rear portion of his head with the Glock 20SF in classroom 10. 

Adam Lanza was 20 years old, 6′ (1.82 m) tall, and weighed 112 lbs (50.8 kg) at the time of his death.
