    Newtown resident Gene Rosen, who lives a few doors up from Sandy Hook Elementary School, helped keep six children safe after they escaped from the school while the shooting was underway. The 69 year-old grandfather and retired psychologist said he took the four girls and two boys into his home, and over the next few hours gave them toys and fed them snacks.
