NEWTOWN, Conn. -- A moment of silence is held in honor of the victims of last Friday's shooting in Connecticut.

It's been one week since a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, killing 26 people at the school, including 20 children.

Today's memorial was observed at 9:30 a.m., marking the exact time when the shooting took place.

Local houses of worship rang bells 26 times for the Sandy Hook victims.

People nationwide also observed the moment of silence at the same time.

Funeral services and memorials for the victims have taken place throughout the week.

President Obama attended a large memorial service for all the victims in Newtown last Sunday night.

Connecticut State Police say 20-year-old Adam Lanza forced his way into the school last Friday morning. Police say he also shot and killed his mother Nancy at their home near the school. They are still looking for a motive as the investigation continues. After the killing spree, police said Lanza took his own life.
