    Talking to my co-workers, the gunman said he wanted WSB cameras there to "film as police die".

    Suspect in custody at Ga. school; reports of shots

    BILL BARROW, AP
    24 minutes ago

    DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A suspect was in custody after reports of gunfire at an Atlanta-area elementary school Tuesday, the school chief said, with television footage showing young students running out the school being escorted by teachers and police. Michael Thurmond told The Associated Press he had no reports of injuries and that all students and teachers are accounted for and safe...

    I hope and pray that this incident is the first, last, and only shooting in a school during the 2013-14 academic year. School hasn't even begun in many parts of the country. It is truly frightening to think that children can't be safe when they're in what should be a safe environment. Please, dear G-d, keep our youngsters safe as they begin a new academic year.

    Police: Gunman wielded AK-47 in school

    One person in custody

    Published On: Aug 20 2013 01:34:44 PM EDT Updated On: Aug 20 2013 06:27:45 PM EDT

    (CNN) -
    A gunman who opened fire at a Georgia elementary school on Tuesday was armed with an AK-47 "and a number of other weapons," police said.

    The shooter barricaded himself in the school's front office with employees before eventually surrendering to police, DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander told reporters.

    No one was injured, authorities said. Police are investigating whether a vehicle the shooter parked outside the school contained explosives, Alexander said...

    Thank God we have NO ONE killed, or even harmed physically.. How so very easily we could be here on this thread mourning the tragic, senseless loss of innocent babes as we did for Sandy Hook.. I'm thanking God that today's outcome was the best outcome one could hope for in such a terrifying and senseless situation brought on by someone obviously severely disturbed and waaaaay past the point of needing help.. Why are these teens/young adults just continuing to slide through the cracks wrt what IMO is severe mental illness that did not just appear this morning when this 19yo woke up ...

    Seriously? This is one of the biggest stories of the year, or should be. A school clerk single-handedly talked down a violent, deranged, would-be mass murderer thus saving countless children, employee and officer lives, using incredible grace and calm and wisdom. Yet it merits almost no replies on Websleuths?

    Even though the full 911 tape in which you can hear her entire incredible act of bravery and heroism unfold, is available?

    How did I know that the story of the teens in OK who killed a white man for fun would be a top story instead? I had a feeling but I had no idea that the Georgia hero story would be buried down so deep, even behind historical cases.

    This makes me so sad and tells me some things I don't want to know about how we think as a nation. Newtown averted by one, phenomenal lady and.....nothing.

    Not sure it was exactly like that. A woman saw the man and overheard him as she left the building. He said something to the effect of "I am not here to harm any students or faculty, I want you to call the police".

    Oddly she left and was driving home (without having called 911) when she heard the shots being fired.

    Regardless if her statements are true he did NOT go there intending to commit mass murder, he specifically said that from the get go.

    I think it was on Anderson Cooper's show last night, he played the entire 911 tape, it was astounding. The woman deserves a medal!
