Sandy Hook to be torn down

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- It's a place where many of the memories are now haunted. Sandy Hook Elementary School where 20 children and six teachers were shot and killed.

Now it's been decided the school will be torn down and a new school will be built on the same site.

Nearly five months after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, a 28-member task force voted unanimously on a plan for the future of the school.

The task force members received forty possible options for new building sites.

They finally decided against moving and against renovation, seeking to demolish the old building and start anew.
