HARTFORD - Relatives of the Sandy Hook shooting victims attempted today to prevent the release of crime scene photos from inside the school.

Family members are urging the Legislature to change the state's Freedom of Information Law, which would allow authorities to disclose evidence in the case. Materials would include photos of the victims and 911 recordings, among other information.

More than two dozen families signed a letter to state leaders, insisting that showing the photos would be damaging to those most closely affected.

Senate Republican Leader John McKinney is sponsoring the bill.
