HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Legislative leaders upset that a Connecticut State Police commander reportedly disclosed information about the Newtown school shooting at a law enforcement seminar in New Orleans say the state police should be briefing them on details of the crime.

Senate President Donald Williams Jr. said Wednesday that any information state police have that wouldn’t adversely affect any potential prosecution should be released “for everyone’s greater understanding of the terrible crime.”

House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero Jr. said lawmakers have asked several times without success for information would help them as they craft a legislative response to the massacre.
Cafero called it “really galling” to read an account in the New York Daily News of comments Col. Daniel Stebbins made to “strangers to our state” about evidence in the case.
