NEW YORK - Connecticut state police released thousands of pages of documents on Friday tied to their investigation of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School last year that killed 20 children and six adults.

The documents include text, photos and 911 emergency calls received by state police on the day of the shootings, and have been redacted. The material was posted on the website Cspsandyhookreport.ct.gov.

The December 14, 2012, shooting rampage in Newtown marked one of the deadliest gun violence incidents in US history. The gunman, Adam Lanza, who also shot and killed his mother before driving to Sandy Hook and forcing his way into the school he once attended, killed himself after police arrived on the scene.

Twenty first-graders, ages 6 and 7, and six staff members lost their lives.

"I hope that the release of this report, though painful, will allow those who have been affected by it to continue in their personal process of healing, and will provide helpful information that can be put to use to prevent such tragedies in the future," Commissioner Reuben Bradford said in a letter introducing the documents.
