Anger, mental illness mark school shooting suspect’s past

Michael Brandon Hill poses with an AK 47-style rifle that authorities believed is the one he had when he was arrested at a Decatur, Ga., elementary school on Tuesday. Investigators say that Hill took the photo and packed up nearly 500 rounds of ammunition, then headed to the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy. No one was injured, but the suspect exchanged gunfire with police.
