HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Investigators have released a report on last year's shooting massacre of 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The summary of investigators' findings was written and released Monday by the prosecutor overseeing the probe, State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III.

The report was initially expected over the summer and the projected release date was pushed back several times. Sedensky has come under pressure to release more information as the first anniversary of the Dec. 14 massacre approaches.

The gunman was 20-year-old Adam Lanza. He killed his mother at their Newtown home, fatally shot 20 first-graders and six educators at the school, and killed himself as police arrived.
