    Connecticut authorities are preparing to release state police documents from the investigation into last year's shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    State police say their report totaling several thousand pages will be released at 3 p.m. ET on Friday. Prosecutors issued a summary of the investigation last month that portrayed the gunman, Adam Lanza, as obsessed with mass murders, but the report concludes that Lanza's motives for the massacre might never be known.

    Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a semi-automatic rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012, after killing his mother inside their home. He committed suicide with a handgun as police arrived at the school.

    The summary says the 20-year-old Lanza had "significant mental health issues."
