Stephen Sedensky III
Recordings of 911 calls from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting show town dispatchers calmly responding to a janitor, a teacher and others and assuring them help is coming.
A Connecticut Superior Court judge ruled last week that the tapes from the Dec. 14, 2012 massacre should be released to The Associated Press after a lengthy fight over the records that have been withheld by investigators.
The state’s Freedom of Information Commission ruled in September that the recordings should be provided to The Associated Press, but State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III asked for a stay while he appeals that order.
The office of the chief state’s attorney said Friday the report will not include the entire evidence file, which runs hundreds of pages.
The state Freedom of Information Commission on Wednesday ruled unanimously in favor of The Associated Press, which sought access to records withheld by investigators.
