HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Recordings of 911 calls from the Newtown school shooting are being released.

A state prosecutor dropped his fight to continue withholding the tapes this week after an order to provide them to The Associated Press, which has sought the recordings in part to examine the police response to the Dec. 14 massacre.

For nearly a year, the AP has been asking for an opportunity to review the tapes, which will be released Wednesday to the news cooperative along with other media organizations. The AP will review the tapes’ content and determine what might meet its standards before releasing material to subscribers.

A total of seven landline calls from inside the school to Newtown police are expected to be released.
