A suspect in another Georgia school shooting in 2013 is in custody. A 19-year-old man took hostages and fired a total of six shots in a Decatur, Georgia elementary school. According to ABC News on August 20, 2013, no one was harmed and the suspect was taken into custody.
Police continued to investigate the car the gunman drove to the school after bomb-sniffing dogs detected explosives.
The lone suspect in the Georgia school shooting was carrying an AK-47 assault rifle and other weapons. He may have entered the campus using a technique called "Drafting." This is where someone with out security clearance, a key, or a badge enters a building closely behind someone who is authorized after they open a door.
Police found the suspect in the Georgia school shooting in the front office, where he was holding several employees hostage. The man asked that a local news station be called and send a camera crew to record him ‘killing police’. Shots were exchanged and the police said that the suspect fired a total of six rounds. The suspect surrendered to police. The SWAT team was called in to clear the building. This is only the second week of classes in the new school year.
