LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) - Emergency dispatchers were told that the suspect in a shooting and standoff at a suburban Atlanta school was off his medication and he thought he should have gone to a mental hospital instead of a school.
Michael Brandon Hill relayed messages to DeKalb County emergency dispatchers through a bookkeeper at McNair Learning Academy in Decatur, Ga. after shooting at police Tuesday afternoon.
In a 911 tape that was released Wednesday, school bookkeeper Antoinette Tuff spoke for the 20-year-old Hill. She told dispatchers that Hill said he had nothing to live for and wanted police to call the DeKalb County probation office.
Hill was arrested in March for making terroristic threats in Henry County and was sentenced to probation.
Police said Hill was carrying nearly 500 rounds and no one was injured.
