CONNECTICUT - Connecticut State Police will release their official report Friday on the chilling texts, photos and 911 calls investigated by authorities in the Newtown school shooting.
The long-awaited document — described as thousands of pages long — is expected to offer the same conclusions already made in a local prosecutor's report in November.
Still, its release marks the end of the state police's exhaustive probe of a tragedy that stunned the country and once again put school gun violence in the forefront of national debate.
Gunman Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother in their Newtown home before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School and using a semiautomatic rifle to massacre 20 students and six educators on Dec. 14, 2012, officials said.
The 20-year-old committed suicide with a Glock 20 pistol as cops closed in on him.
