Connecticut man with ties to Sandy Hook Elementary speaks out

TUCSON- A man with Newtown, Connecticut ties is mourning the deaths from Sandy Hook Elementary's shooting.

Joseph Pasadento was very emotional as he remembered the times he worked at Sandy Hook. Pasadento held back tears as he watches the news coverage. He said it hurts to hear that so many little ones lost their life.

Pasadento said he worked for a power company and frequently worked at Sandy Hook Elementary.

"That town is a beautiful town it's very quiet," said Pasadento.

He said what happened there was unthinkable.

"To have such young young kids just massacred in the classroom is just unbelievable, and I just can't handle it," said Pasadento.

Many local parents are also having a difficult time understanding this.

"It's a terrible tragedy especially so close to Christmas, and I can't imagine going through something like this," said parent Carol Adams.

Pasadento's mission now is to bring the community together and pray for these victims and their families.
