NEWTOWN, Connecticut — A medical examiner says all the victims of the U.S. school shooting were killed by gunshot wounds.

Dr. H. Wayne Carver told a news conference Saturday the deaths are classified as homicides.

Investigators are trying to learn more about Friday’s massacre of 26 children and adults in Connecticut and about 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza.
