Suspect in Georgia school shootings due in court
DECATUR, Georgia (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The 20-year-old accused of bringing weapons into an elementary school in Decatur Georgia is expected in court Wednesday.
Police identified the suspect as Michael Brandon Hill.
More than 800 elementary kids had to be evacuated from their school after police say Hill snuck onto campus with an assault rifle and other weapons.
Authorities say he made his way to the office where he ordered a secretary to call a TV station.
When police arrived they say Hill started shooting at officers, firing at least a half dozen rounds.
A school clerk helped convince the gunman to put down his weapons and give himself up.
Fortunately no one was injured.
