US witnessed 100 murders since Sandy Hook massacre
Washington: As many as 100 killings have taken place across the United States after the horrifying Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre which left 28 people, including 20 children dead.
The Huffington Post tracked gun-related homicides and accidents throughout the US, logging more than 100 from Google and Nexis searches.
This is by no means a definitive tally, the paper stated.
