The father of gunman Adam Lanza has told a Connecticut committee studying the Sandy Hook school massacre that he's willing to turn over some of his son's medical records, the Hartford Courant reported Friday.

"Mr. Lanza has reached out to me and expressed his desire to help the commission," said panel chairman Scott Jackson. "We are in dialogue on the parameters on how he might provide assistance."

Jackson said anything Peter Lanza handed over on his son's mental health and medical records would "aid in analyzing any gaps in services in Connecticut," said Jackson.

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission is tasked with compiling recommendations to improve school security, mental health services and gun violence prevention.

Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 first graders and six adults at Sandy Hook elementary on Dec. 14 2012.

Police reports revealed that the gunman visited the Yale Child Study Center in his early teens and had been on the antidepressant Celexa.

Police records show a Yale psychiatrist involved in Lanza's care concluded s, that he "displayed a profound autism spectrum disorder with rigidity, isolation and a lack of comprehension of ordinary social interaction and communications."
