Sandy Hook School Shooting

Families of Sandy Hook Shooting Victims May Get $281,000 Each from Donations

No such luck for Chicago families


The families of the 20 children and six adults who were killed when a gunman opened fire at a Connecticut elementary school in December should each get $281,000 from donations that poured in after the shooting, a committee recommended on Thursday.

The families of the 12 children who witnessed and survived the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School would each get $20,000 and two teachers who were injured would get a combined $150,000.
