TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It's been nearly a year since the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn.

New information has been released today to help us understand what happened that day.

A man acted alone in that mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that killed 20 kids and six adults.

That's according to a new report released this afternoon from the state attorney.

The 48-page report has background information on the shooter, Adam Lanza. The report says his mom was going to move out of state so Lanza could go to a special school or get a computer job.

The report also shows where this incident started.

An AP report states a Conn. judge is reviewing the 911 tapes from that day and will determine if they are suitable to be released to the public.

As you may know, Tucsonans have been helping with the relief effort.

A local non-profit called Ben's Bells has its volunteers paint hand-made bells and place them across different areas for people to find.

They sent volunteers to Newtown to hang 1,000 bells across the city. This project is intended to bring smiles and a sense of hope to those who find the bells.

Here's a link to the 48-page report.
