Photo of suspected Atlanta school shooter released

A photo of a man suspected of opening fire at a school in a suburb of Atlanta was distributed on social media Tuesday.

Police identified 20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill as the suspect and said he would likely face several charges.

After he was identified, Chicago-based ABC reporter Chuck Goudie tweeted the following picture he claimed to be of Hill.

DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said Hill he is also charged with terroristic threats and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and is being questioned at police headquarters. She says no additional information was being released right now.

DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric L. Alexander said at a news conference that the gunman fired at least a half-dozen shots from inside Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy at police who were swarming the scene outside.

Officers returned fire. No one was injured.
