Georgia School Shooting Suspect Caught

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) --
   A police chief says the suspect in a Georgia elementary school shooting fired from inside the school and officers returned fire.
   DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric L. Alexander said at a news conference that the gunman who had an assault rifle was able to get into Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur Tuesday by following behind someone who was authorized to be there.
   Alexander says the 19-year-old suspect is being questioned. The chief also says officers believed the suspect had explosives in the trunk of his car so they cut a hole in a fence to make sure students running from the building could get even farther away.
   DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Michael Thurmond praised faculty and authorities who got the young students to safety, saying it is a "blessed day, all our children are safe."
