A vigil was held in Stratford, Conn., Saturday night for 27-year-old Victoria "Vicki" Soto.

Soto is being considered a hero as she stood in front of a group of children Friday to shield them when the gunman opened fire inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Adam Lanza is suspected of killing 20 children and six adults before taking his own life on Friday.

Lanza's mother, Nancy, who was originally from Kingston, N.H., was his initial victim. He then reportedly moved on to the elementary school, where he caused what became the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.
