The Newtown school massacre victims were all shot multiple times and suffered “devastating” wounds, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner said Saturday.

Dr. Wayne Carver said autopsies on the 20 slain children had been completed and post-mortems on the six murdered staff members would be done by day’s end. The names of the victims were handed to reporters live at the news conference.

“Everybody’s death was caused by gunshot wounds and obviously the manner of death on all these cases have been classified as homicide,” Carver said.

He said that he personally performed seven autopsies and those children had between three and 11 wounds each. Two of them were shot at close range, the others at a distance.

“This is a very devastating set of injuries,” Carver said. “I believe everyone was hit more than once.”

2. bless the first responders

going from one tiny victim to another, looking desperately for a pulse, a breath, any sign of life in the carnage, any sign of hope, finding only two to send to the hospital, and they later died as well.

3. Ban assault weapons. Now.

Ct. Chief Medical Examiner:

■“All the wounds were caused by the long weapon.”
■“I only did seven autopsies and they ranged from three to 11 wounds a piece.”
