Antoinette Tuff is the definition of a hero. She has GUTS.

Tuff, an employee at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy just outside Atlanta, is being called a ‘real hero’ for how she talked down a gunman at the elementary school.

The suspect, identified as Michael Brandon Hill, slipped inside behind someone else with AK-47 type weapon. He then, according to CNN, reportedly entered the office and shot at the ground, before jumping between inside and outside to fire at police.

She divulged her personal struggles to the gunman, trying to find a way to relate to him even as he “load[ed] up with ammunition in front of her and several other employees who were being held hostage.”  Read More »
