NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) Well-wishers continue to turn out in Newtown, moved by this month's deadly school shootings.

People from around the country showed up Christmas morning to hang ornaments on a series of memorial Christmas trees while police officers from around the state also took on extra shifts to work in the town directing traffic and patrolling the town so that local officers could be with their families.

Faith Leonard drove to Newtown from Gilbert, Ariz., to hand out Christmas cookies, children's gifts and hugs on Tuesday.

Leonard says her work in Newtown might allow others to spend more time with their family.

Police don't know why Adam Lanza killed 26 people at the school, his mother and himself on December 14.
