(Newser) – The 911 call in which a heroic school clerk successfully talks down a gunman armed with an AK-47 has been released by authorities in Georgia. In the 24-minute call, Antoinette Tuff can be heard telling operators, "He said he don’t care if he dies, he don’t have nothing to live for." She later tells him that she loves him and she is proud of him for surrendering, USA Today reports. Police say suspect Michael Brandon Hill was carrying 500 rounds of ammunition, underlining just how many lives Tuff may have saved.
