SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. — As Sarasota K-9 Search and Rescue team leader Patricia Abrams watched the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., unfold with the rest of the nation Dec. 14, she felt compelled to swing into action.
'When we heard about the events that day, I think the whole nation was in shock,' Abrams said of the shootings, in which 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza killed 26 students, teachers and faculty, then killed himself as police arrived. He also killed his mother prior to the school assault.
