Sandy Hook 911 Tapes to Be Released Wednesday

A judge ruled last week they must be made public


The 911 recordings from the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school last year will be released to the public Wednesday, town officials said Monday.

A Connecticut Superior Court judge ruled last week that the tapes from the massacre in Newtown should be released to The Associated Press after a lengthy fight over the records, which investigators have withheld.

State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, the lead investigator of the shooting, raised several arguments to shield the recordings that were rejected first by Connecticut's Freedom of Information Commission, which ruled in favor of the AP in September, and then the judge who ordered their release.
