NEWTOWN, Conn. - Authorities say the Connecticut elementary school where a gunman shot to death 26 people will be closed indefinitely while the crime is investigated.

State police Lt. Paul Vance said Monday at a news conference that it could be months before police turn the school in Newtown, Conn., back over to the district.

Police say other schools in Newtown will reopen Tuesday. The children who attended Sandy Hook Elementary School, where the shootings took place Friday, are expected to go to classes at a different school, but police say they won't be going to classes yet.

Authorities say 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot to death 26 people at Sandy Hook on Friday, including 20 children, then killed himself.

The first funerals are planned today for two of the children who were killed -- six-year-olds Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner. Others are scheduled for later in the week.
