Order sought for Newtown gunman's school records

Posted: Updated:

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut's attorney general wants a judge to order Newtown school officials to release the records of the gunman who killed 26 people at an elementary school, including 20 first-grade students.

Attorney General George Jepsen wants Adam Lanza's school records to be released to the state child advocate office so its Child Fatality Review Panel can examine the Dec. 14 attack. The panel reviews unexpected and unexplained child fatalities.

The 20-year-old Lanza killed his mother at their home, then killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School before killing himself as police officers arrived.

The Child Advocate's office first sought Lanza's school records in March, but Newtown school officials have not released the information.

District officials did not immediately return a phone message left Saturday.
