Before going to the school, investigators say that Michael Brandon Hill took a photo of himself with an AK 47-style rifle and packed up nearly 500 rounds of ammunition ? enough to shoot more than half the school's students. Police said Hill got the gun from an acquaintance, but it's not clear if he stole it or had permission to take it. No one was injured, but the suspect exchanged gunfire with police who surrounded Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur. The school's 870 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade were evacuated.
