Authorities have released the names of the victims of Friday’s mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in which Adam Lanza, 20, reportedly killed 27 people, as well as himself. Lanza’s rampage began when he shot and killed his mother, Nancy, at her home before he drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed six adults and 20 children before taking his own life.

More information about the victims will come to light as their families — and the nation — continue to come to grips with what happened and investigators try to piece together exactly what led to Lanza’s actions.

Dr. Wayne Carver, the chief medical examiner in Connecticut, spoke to the media Saturday, during which time he said, “This is a very devastating set of injuries. I believe everyone was hit more than once.”

Carver also added he will perform an autopsy on Adam Lanza and his mother.

Here’s a list of the victims whose lives were taken at the school. A total of 18 females and eight males were among the deceased.
