School shooting 911 call: ‘I love you, proud of you’

NEED TO KNOW
  • Listen to Antoinette Huff talk Michael Brandon Hill into surrendering during tense situation at Atlanta school
  • School worker keeps her cool, but says she was 'scared'
  • Shooting suspect's family says he has mental issues

It's simply stunning to hear how a school bookkeeper stayed calm as she faced a man accused of opening fire at an Atlanta-area elementary school Tuesday.

On the just-released 911 call, Antoinette Tuff says the suspect told her he was off his medications and he had nothing to live for.

After keeping extremely cool during the standoff, Tuff finally broke down once the 20-year-old suspect surrendered and was taken into custody. She told the 911 operator, "I've never been so scared in all the days of my life.”

Police say suspect Michael Hill was armed with an AK-47 type weapon and 500 rounds of ammunition. The suspect's family says he was diagnosed as bi-polar and had other mental health issues. Hill was arrested in March for threatening to kill his brother. He got three years probation.

Police could decide what charges he'll face for Tuesday's terrifying events as early as today.
