People across the area are coming together to mourn the victims of Newtown tragedy.

In Sunnyside, Queens Tuesday night there was a candlelight vigil for everyone affected.

One victim, little Benjamin Wheeler, once lived in the neighborhood.

Principal Dawn Hochsprung's step-sister still lives there.

She said her grieving is eased somewhat by knowing so many heroes saved so many lives.

Police say Dawn Hochsprung died while trying to protect students and she reportedly turned on the PA system when the shooting started as a warning.
