ATLANTA (AP) - A school bookkeeper credited with persuading a gunman into surrendering after shots were fired at a metro Atlanta school has written a book about the ordeal.

Antoinette Tuff told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that she had a conversation with the God as she tried to talk a man accused of opening fire on police officers into eventually surrendering. She said she asked God how she should react.

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 engaging police in a gun battle, and faces charges that include aggravated assault.

Tuff’s new book is titled “Prepared for a Purpose.”
