Conn. woman seeks to help traumatized Newtown cops

SHELTON, Conn. (AP) A Shelton woman is helping Newtown's police who were traumatized after responding to last month's school shooting.

The Connecticut Post reports that yoga studio owner Linda Antignani is collecting donations through the end of February to buy Walmart gift cards for Newtown police officers to buy food.

Antignani says she decided to get involved after reading media reports that many Newtown police officers who responded to the shooting have been unable to work. Many officers are using sick days and a union representative says some officers could go without a paycheck.

Antignani says she was moved by the plight of those officers.

A liaison for the Newtown police will identify officers in the most need and distribute the gift cards.
