Memorial service held for Conn. gunman's mother

A memorial service was held Thursday for the mother of the gunman who shot and killed 20 children at a Connecticut elementary school, CBS Station WBZ Boston reported.

According to police in Kingston, N.H., the private service was attended by 25 people in the town of about 6,400, where Nancy Lanza once lived.

Her son Adam Lanza burst into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday, killing 20 children and six adults before committing suicide. Before the shooting, Lanza killed his mother in her bed. Reports say that the weapons that Adam Lanza carried with him in the attack was registered to her.
