A Connecticut prosecutor is seeking to black out some information from search warrants in the Connecticut school shooting that are due to be released Thursday.

State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III filed the motions Wednesday in Danbury Superior Court. An order to seal the documents related to the massacre in December in Newtown expires Wednesday.

Sedensky asked a judge not to release the name of a witness, saying the person's safety may be jeopardized if the name were disclosed. He also asked that other information be redacted, such as telephone numbers and a few paragraphs of an affidavit.

The gunman killed his mother in their home before massacring 26 people at the school Dec. 14. He then committed suicide.

The investigation into the mass shooting is not expected to be finished till June.
