NEWTOWN, Conn. (WHDH) — Wednesday afternoon the 911 calls from inside Sandy Hook Elementary School were released.

Police in Newtown and many of the victims’ families didn't want the calls to be released, but a judge ruled they should be made public.

The calls that were released last just more than 12 minutes.

Two dispatchers calmly took calls from people inside the school when a gunman came in and started shooting last December.

One of the people who called police is a custodian, another call came from a teacher who was shot in the foot but survived.

The shooter, Adam Lanza, killed 20 students and six adults inside the school, before killing himself. Earlier in the morning the 20-year-old also shot and killed his mother.

A report released by the state last week said Lanza's mother told friends her son disliked holidays and birthdays and would only communicate with her via email, even though they lived in the same house.
