Connecticut state police met this week with the families of the Newtown elementary school shooting victims to update them on the investigation, but details of the briefing aren't being released.

State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance told the News-Times of Danbury that Tuesday night's meeting at Edmond Town Hall was the first of many that will be held to answer the families' questions.

Troopers say Adam Lanza killed 20 first-grade students, six educators and himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, after fatally shooting his mother at their Newtown home.

Some parents want to know more about Lanza's mental state, but Vance says state law prohibits police from releasing that information.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has said the police report on the shootings may be ready by mid-March.
