HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Family members of the Newtown school shooting victims are making a last-minute appearance at the state Capitol to urge Connecticut legislators to pass a bill that would block the public release of crime scene photos and other records from the massacre.

About 20 relatives of the 20 first graders and six educators killed Dec. 14 met with legislative leaders on Friday, days before the regular legislative session is set to adjourn June 5.

Dean Pinto, whose six-year-old son Jack was killed, said the families are especially worried about crime scene photos appearing on the Internet, posted by people with various political agendas and not necessarily the traditional media.

Pinto said the families also do not want to hear the gunshots and ``the screams of our loved ones as they perished.''
