FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- The Connecticut State Police on Friday released thousands of pages of its investigative documents related to the deadly Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The report is available online at this state website:

"First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers, as well as those of all members of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, continue to be with the family of the victims, the survivors and the entire Newtown community," said Commissioner Reuben F. Bradford in a statement.

"On December 14, 2012, your lives were changed forever in a matter of moments. The horror and unspeakable sadness of that day and the lives that were lost will never be forgotten."

The report runs several thousand pages and has been redacted according to state law, State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance said in a statement.

It contains some text, photos and 911 calls received by the State Police on the day of the deadly shootings in Newtown.

The release of this document indicates that this State Police criminal investigation is complete, Vance said.

Administratively, the investigation consists of three separate case numbers for the primary investigation, for the scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and for the homicide at 36 Yogananda St. in Newtown, State Police said at the website.

Each investigation includes numerous written reports, with each case number available for separate download. Additionally, each investigation also includes various forms of multimedia, including photographs, video recordings and/or audio recordings, State Police said.

Many of the files are very large, will take a considerable amount of time to download, and may impose a heavy burden on the hosting system, State Police said.

The release of the documents came more than a year after 20 first-graders and six educators were killed by a lone gunman at the Newtown school on Dec. 14, 2012.

Newtown First Selectman E. Patricia Llorda said she will review the report and released the following statement Friday morning.

"My heart is heavy knowing that the report carries more detailed information about the victims. I can only imagine the hurt such information carries for the families of the loved ones. Let this be the last of the releases, unless there is some good to be gained by additional information," the statement said.

The release came about a month after Danbury State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III released a 48-page summary report based on the documents, concluding that shooter Adam Lanza acted alone in planning and carrying out the massacre. No motive was found for the deadly shootings, the report said. He also killed his mother before the school shooting and killed himself after police arrived at the school, the report said.
