The brother of the 20-year-old man who police say went to an Atlanta-area school heavily armed and exchanged gunfire with officers before surrendering says he was a normal kid growing up, but began to change as a teenager and engage in threatening behavior.

Police said Michael Brandon Hill held one or two staff members in the front office of McNair Discovery Learning Academy captive Tuesday for a time, making one of them call a local TV station. As officers swarmed the campus outside, he shot at them at least a half a dozen times with an assault rifle from inside the school and they returned fire.
