New Details Released in Sandy Hooks Elementary School Shooting


New details are expected to be released this afternoon about the deadly shooting at a Connecticut Elementary School last December.

It's been nearly one year since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults, not including the killer who took his own life.

It’s a chilling memory for this fragile community as they brace themselves for new information.

Later today, the State Attorney's Office will release a summary report shedding new light on the 11 month investigation.

It's expected to include a timeline of shooter Adam Lanza's movements, beginning in the morning when he killed his mother, Nancy, at her home before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he blasted his way in through a glass window and fired over 150 shots from an assault rifle in about five minutes.

A much more detailed account of the massacre with photos and witness statements, reportedly thousands of pages long, won't be released in its entirety until sometime next year.

Officials plan to edit out some sensitive information before that full police report is finally issued.

Also today, a court is expected to decide on the release of the 911 calls.

The Connecticut State Freedom of Information Commission ordered the release of the tapes back in September, overruling objections by Newtown officials.

Local residents are at odds over whether the calls should be made public.

Many fear the release of new details will open fresh wounds for a community still trying to heal.
