On Tuesday, 20 year old Brandon Michael Hill walked into a Georgia elementary school dressed all in black, and carrying a bag full of guns and ammunition, including an assault rifle.

He exchanged gunfire with the police, and fired off several shots in the office of bookkeeper Antoinette Tuff-Michael. Here
, she gives her account of what happened next.
From the video:
"He tried to go back out of the office, where the kids were, and I called him back and told him to stay inside with me...I knew that if he got outside, he was going to start shooting kids... [So] I just started telling him my stories and things that I had been going through...I [saw] myself and my kids, and all those 800 babies and staff members that was in there, depending on me to keep their lives safe...He told me he had no reason to live, and that nobody loved him. And I just told him that I loved him.""
Tuff-Michael eventually convinced Hill to set down his weapons and surrender himself to the police. She says she'll be back at school tomorrow.
