The 9-1-1 recordings from last year's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., will be released after a ruling by Connecticut's Freedom of Information Commission. The Associated Press had asked the panel to release the tapes. "While the new law exempts from disclosure certain audio recordings of conversations, presumably between first responders, in which the conditions of victims are described in such recordings, it specifically does not shield from disclosure recordings of 911 calls from members of the public to law enforcement agencies," according to an August report from the commission.
