US shooting victim's parents mourn 'little CEO'

The parents of Jessica Rekos, six, have recounted the moment they realised their "little CEO" had been killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Twenty children and six women died in the assault by a lone man who then took his own life.

Richard and Krista Rekos told ABC News that, upon hearing Jessica's school was in "lock down", they rushed there expecting "to see her little ponytail come around the corner".
