When President Barack Obama came to Connecticut to make a national push for federal gun control legislation, he met privately with 11 relatives of victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and left with a reminder of one teacher who died trying to protect her young students.
When Obama came off Air Force One, he was carrying a red paper bag and White House officials said it contained T-shirts from Vicki Soto’s sister Jillian, White House officials said.
Vicki Soto, 27, of Stratford, was a first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
A memorial fund has been set up in her honor.
