Memorial for school shooting victims in Brazil

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Brazil joined the rest of the world on Saturday (December 15) in expressing support for the victims of a school shooting in the United States that left 20 children and six adults dead. The Brazilian human rights advocacy group, Rio of Peace, placed 26 crosses in the sand on famed Copacabana Beach in memory of the victims of Friday's shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Images of distraught parents making their way to Sandy Hook Elementary School following the shooting reverberated worldwide. In Brazil, all major news bulletins led with the tragic news. The attacker, identified by law enforcement sources as Adam Lanza, opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, which teaches children aged 5 to 10. The shooter killed 26 people before turning the gun on himself, and was suspected of killing another person before the massacre.
