The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter lined up students before unloading his rifle, according to a new book by President Obama’s spiritual adviser, Joshua DuBois, the New York Daily News reports.

“The President’s Devotional: The Daily Readings That Inspired President Obama”  describes the horrific scene at the elementary school.

“How the gunman treated the children like criminals, lining them up to shoot them down. How so many bullets penetrated them that many were left unrecognizable. How the killer went from one classroom to another and would have gone farther if his rifle would’ve let him,” wrote DuBois, according to an excerpt of the book.

With DuBois at his side, the president met with families after 20-year-old Adam Lanza gunned down 26 people, 20 of whom were children.

“The President took a deep breath and steeled himself, and went into the first classroom. And what happened next I’ll never forget,” wrote DuBois about the heart-wrenching meetings.
