NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut prosecutor is asking a court to block the release of 911 recordings from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting as he appeals an order from the state's Freedom of Information Commission.

The FOI commission ruled in September that the recordings of calls from inside the school should be provided to The Associated Press.

The state's attorney leading the investigation into the Newtown shooting, Stephen Sedensky III, has asked for the ruling to be reversed in New Britain Superior Court. A hearing is scheduled Friday on his request for a stay of the ruling while his appeal is pending.

A gunman killed 20 children and six educators inside the school on Dec. 14.

The AP has sought the recordings in part to examine the police response to the massacre.
