Ohio marks one week since Conn. school shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Bells will toll and high school students will participate in a memorial walk as Ohio marks one week since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

Many churches throughout the state planned to toll their bells 26 times at 9:30 a.m. Friday to remember the 20 children and six adults gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School one week ago.

The Rev. Richard Burnett, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Columbus, said a tolling of the bells can be a memorial, call to prayer or a call to action. In this case, he said, it means all of those things.

At Ohio State University, the bells of historic Orton Hall will chime.

Students at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School near Cleveland are planning a memorial walk at the school Friday morning.
