NEWTOWN, Conn. (WUSA) - Imagine the prettiest downtown area you've ever seen, all decked out in festive holiday decorations. Now add dozens of memorials to tiny shooting victims, taken from this world far too early by a gun-toting madman, and that holiday is transformed into an epicenter of sadness. Our crew was dispatched from here in D.C. to go cover what can only be described as one of the worst atrocities that has ever happened inside the borders of these United States: 20 children and seven adults shot and killed for no reason at all. The pictures you see on TV tell only half of the story. To be there is to experience the sorrow firsthand. See the attached photos by producer Cris Mullen for a sense of what Newtown is feeling tonight.
