Some officials from Newtown, Conn., will share their stories about the Sandy Hook shooting during a speech at Lafayette College.

Newtown Police Chief Michael Kehoe and First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra will talk about the challenges of leading a community rocked by violence in a presentation titled, "Rebuilding in the Aftermath of the Sandy Hook Tragedy."

Twenty adults and six children were fatally shot at the elementary school last December.


The discussion will be held on May 29 at 1 p.m. in Kirby Hall, Room 104 and is free and open to the public.

The speech will be part of Lafayette College Meyner Center's 11th Annual Forum on Local Government.
