Many wore the school’s colors and brought flowers, signs and candles.

Fred Guttenberg spoke of his last moments with his daughter, Jaime.

“I sent her to school yesterday. She was supposed to be safe. My job is to protect my children, and I sent my kid to school.  In the morning, sometimes, things get so crazy, she runs out behind, and she’s like, I got to go dad. Bye. And I don’t always get to say I love you. I don’t remember if I said that to Jaime yesterday morning,” Guttenberg said emotionally. “Jaime was such a special kids. All of the kids here are. What’s unfathomable is Jaime took a bullet and is dead. I don’t know what I do next. My wife is home. We are broken.”
