Atlanta Gunman Ordered School Employee to Call WSB

During the school shooting in Atlanta Tuesday afternoon, the gunman ordered a school employee to call WSB, the ABC affiliate in Atlanta.

After the school employee placed the call, she was connected to an assignment editor, Lacey Lecroy, who talked about the conversation during the station’s continuing coverage of the incident. “All my time doing this I’ve never experienced anything like this … she said, ‘he wants me to give a message to Channel 2. He wants Channel 2 to come here,” she said (video above).

“I never heard him, just her. I asked her why and he said he wanted us to start filming as police die … I was so worried for her,” Lecroy said.
