COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court has set June 3 for oral arguments in a case filed by news media groups seeking school records about the man who gunned down nine people in Dayton last August before being killed by police.

Media groups including The Associated Press argue the records could provide information on whether authorities properly handled warning signs from gunman Connor Betts.

The Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Local Schools district says Betts’ records are protected by student privacy laws.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost will also argue to release the records.
