    A state prosecutor says Connecticut State Police are still investigating the deadly Newtown school shooting and that "no prosecution is on the horizon."

    Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III appeared Thursday at the first meeting of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's Sandy Hook Advisory Commission. Sedensky told panel members it will take police several months to finish their investigative report. He said it could be ready by June.

    Sedensky said he could not provide any information about the mental health background of the shooter, Adam Lanza, because it was privileged information.

    On Monday, the community announced the formation of the "Sandy Hook Promise." It comes as residents mark one month since the shooting massacre. Brynn Gingras reports. (Published Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013)

    The commission is reviewing the state's laws and policies in the wake of the Dec. 14 massacre that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead. Malloy urged them to forward some preliminary recommendations before the legislature adjourns June 5.

     

    In addition to Malloy's group, the General Assembly has formed a bipartisan task force that is examining the same issues. A subcommittee on school safety is holding a public hearing on Friday at the Legislative Office Building. A hearing on gun safety is planned for Jan. 28 and another hearing on mental health issues is scheduled for Jan. 29.
