Michael Brandon Hill Packing Nearly 500 Rounds at Georgia Elementary School
The suspect in Tuesday’s Atlanta-area school shooting took a photo of himself with an AK 47-style rifle and packed up nearly 500 rounds of ammunition — enough to shoot more than half the school’s students — the police said Wednesday.
Police said Michael Brandon Hill got the gun from an acquaintance, but it’s not clear if he stole it or had permission to take it.
No one was injured Tuesday, but the suspect exchanged gunfire with police who surrounded Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur. The school’s 870 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade were evacuated.
