A recording from a 911 call on Tuesday reveals how a school clerk in Georgia, USA, successfully talked an armed man from shooting in a school.

Antoinette Tuff, a school clerk in the Ronald E McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Georgia, placated Michael Brandon Hill, who was brandishing an AK-47.

Hill fired shots in the school but did not fire at anyone. Ms Tuff called the police whilst continuing to speak to Hill and prevented him from firing any more rounds.
