The HOT 97 Morning Show


Antoinette Tuff is a real life Georgia hero!

She's the woman that talked a gunman from shooting kids in the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy.

20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill walked right into the elementary school wearing all black, holding an AK-47, and then fired a few shots in the office. He told the staff that he was about to end the lived of students and teachers because he didn’t have anything to live for.

Antoinette was somehow able to talk the gunman out of his horrific idea. She spoke to him for an hour about her own struggles in life and told him she loved him. She said, “I just explained to him that I loved him. I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know much about him, but I did love him.”

After talking to him Hill made a phone call to one of his family members and had an emotional conversation before deciding to turn himself into the police. She was finally able to convince him to empty his pockets and lay down on the floor so the police could arrest him. Thankfully no child or staff member was harmed.

Take a look at Antoinette's brave testimony here:
