GA school bookkeeper to be guest of Obama at State of the Union

ATLANTA — A metro Atlanta bookkeeper who is credited with talking a school gunman into surrendering will be a guest of President Barack Obama for his State of the Union address.

The White House announced that Antoinette Tuff is among guests who will join first lady Michelle Obama to watch the speech this evening. The White House frequently invites guests to sit with the first lady during the address to emphasize a policy or issue the president wants to underscore.

Police credit Tuff with persuading Michael Brandon Hill to surrender after they say he went to the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur Aug. 20 with an assault rifle and nearly 500 rounds of ammunition. Hill is accused of firing shots at police, and faces charges that include aggravated assault.
