The 911 calls from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012 were released on Wednesday afternoon.

The First Coast News editorial staff discussed whether to air the calls on air and on our website and decided not to do so.

We will report on what was said in the calls on air and online, however, we did not want to play the actual calls out of respect for the families who lost loved ones that day.

FCN also determined that doing so would not add anything to the story that could be construed as a benefit to the viewer.
