The community of Newtown weathered a fourth day of funerals on Thursday, six days after Adam Lanza opened fire before taking his own life.
A private funeral has been held in New Hampshire for Lanza's mother, whom he shot at their Connecticut home before driving to the elementary school.
The police chief in Kingston said the funeral for Nancy Lanza was held Thursday at an undisclosed location.
Chief Donald Briggs said about 25 family members attended the ceremony in the small town, where Adam Lanza once lived.
The Newtown tragedy is the second worst school shooting in U.S. history after the 2007 Virginia Tech rampage, which left 33 people dead.
