HARTFORD, Conn. — 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.

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.
