One of the teachers killed in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was killed after reportedly hiding some children and then lying to the gunman that they were elsewhere in the school.

Investigators told the family of Victoria Soto that she was killed while shielding her pupils.

Anne Amato from the Connecticut Post explains what is believed to have happened.
