Connecticut School Shooting: First 2 Funerals Held for Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner


Officials said today that the school, where the shooting took place, would be closed "indefinitely." Officials in Newtown, Conn., say they plan to reopen other schools Tuesday in an effort to get kids back to normal routines.

Jack Pinto was a huge New York Giants fan, and his favorite player was wide receiver Victor Cruz. After hearing that Jack was a fan, Cruz wrote "R.I.P. Jack Pinto," "Jack Pinto, my hero" and "This one is 4 U!" on his cleats and gloves before playing the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon. Cruz tweeted photos of his tribute shortly before the game, along with his condolences.

Cruz told reporters he spoke to the family Saturday after hearing Jack was a Giants fan. Cruz was told the family planned to bury Jack in Cruz's No. 80 Giants jersey.

More funerals for the shooting victims are planned for later this week. Jessica Rekos, 6, will be buried Tuesday at St. Rose Cemetery after a service at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church.
