Valley businessman has family living in Newtown, CT

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The reports out of Connecticut hit very close to home for one valley businessman.

Jim Brown, the Chief Operating Officer at Handel's Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt, has a sister who lives in Newtown.

Her son, Nicholas, attends high school, but for some time on Friday people weren't sure at which school the shootings had occurred.

Brown says it's likely everyone in the small community will be impacted by Friday's tragedy.

"Nicholas has a lot of friends who have younger brothers and sisters and just from a sheer numbers standpoint, they're going to know some kids who aren't coming home. And that's pretty tough," Brown said.
