NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Search warrants used in the investigation of the Newtown school shooting are to be released today along with a statement from prosecutors, who so far have released few details about their work to unravel the motives of the 20-year-old gunman.
The shooter, Adam Lanza, shot his mother to death inside their Newtown home on Dec. 14 before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he massacred 20 first-graders and six educators. He killed himself as police arrived.
Investigators recently have faced pressure to release more details. The governor has expressed concern about leaked information appearing in news outlets, and state lawmakers have requested a more complete accounting of the case as they work on legislation addressing gun control and other issues raised by the shooting.
