Crews have torn down the home of the man who killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Mass. The demolition took place Monday.

On Dec. 14, 2012, Adam Lanza killed his mother in the home before shooting 20 first-graders and six staff members at Sandy Hook and then committing suicide. The town acquired the property in December of 2014 and voted to tear the house down in January. Neighbors had complained that it reminded them of the tragedy, according to NBC Connecticut.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School building where the tragedy took place was torn down in 2013.
