Not-Quite A School Shooting in Georgia
« on: August 20, 2013, 04:47:03 AM »

Oh boy, here we go again...

Just saw it on CNN's broadcast, there's nothing about it up on the major news network in the way of details, but here's the scoop:

There are reports of shots fired at an elementary school in Decatur, GA.

I hope nobody's been hurt.

UPDATE: Nobody hurt, suspect in custody, kids being evacuated.

Contrary to what news relevancy might suggest, a school shooting where nobody gets hurt is still a school shooting.

I think that's the neighborhood a couple of my friends from Atlanta live in. I'd check in but I already know nobody's hurt, so.

I heard audio of the full 911 call, and a school secretary or book keeper talked the guy down after five or six shots were fired.

At an elementary school? Was this a student, or some psycho off the street?

Yeah, this school secretary talked the shooter down. 

Without a gun.

Hey, McDohl, you got a link to that call? Is that on YouTube (looked, couldn't find one) or did they play it on the radio? I'd love to hear that.

It's a cliche, but it bears repeating: they do not pay those people enough.

I heard highlights from the call on NPR.
