Teacher in custody after 'shots fired' report at US school

Teacher in custody after 'shots fired' report at US school

He again was taken to a hospital.

"Obviously, at that point, he locked down the school", Frazier said.

Threats have been made at schools across the country in the wake of the deadly February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The NRA has also supported the idea of arming teachers.

A single shot was sacked, according to reports.

Davidson is facing charges of aggravated assault, carrying a weapon on school grounds, terroristic threats, reckless conduct, possession of a gun during the commission of a crime and disrupting public school. According to Frazier, that injury was a hurt ankle suffered by a young girl "fleeing in the pandemonium". He was supposed to make his first court appearance Thursday afternoon, but it never happened.

The jail records do not indicate whether he has an attorney.

Police named the teacher involved as 53-year-old Jesse Randall Davidson, a history teacher who also served as a commentator for the Dalton High School football team.

A mother has revealed the terrifying text messages her daughter sent her while hiding inside a classroom following reports of gunfire at her school in Georgia.

Russell Wilson strikes out in New York Yankees spring training debut
That's what the Yankees did early last month, trading "future considerations" to the Texas Rangers for Wilson's rights. In 2008, the actor and lifelong Yankees fan signed a one-day deal with the club and struck out against the Pirates.

Then, in an act that brought home the danger of the situation, her daughter texted, "omg she's putting desk in front of the door".

Police responded to the report of shot or shots fired at Dalton High School in Dalton and reported via Twitter that a person, believed to be a teacher, was barricaded inside. Authorities say no one was hurt and he eventually gave himself up. No students were injured by gun fire. "I didn't get the door open very far, but he slammed the door and a hollered, go away, don't come in here".

A "threatening" note was found last week at the school but wasn't immediately clear whether the note was related to the shooting yesterday. But a spokesman says apparently the teacher DIDN'T intend to harm any students.

"There is a barricaded subject in a classroom".

So, 11Alive went to the school on Thursday to find out how much they knew about Davidson's mental state.

Davidson was found later that day near an intersection nearly a mile away from the school.

Dalton is about 30 miles south of Chattanooga.

"It's certainly shocking to me that one of the staff members pulled out a gun in a classroom and fired it", Bartoo said. On his way to take shelter in a classroom, Wesley filmed a video of students running frantically through the hallways.

In videos shared by students on social media, you can see them evacuating the building in a controlled manner for the most part, however - a testament to the prompt and professional response from school officials. He was taken into custody about 30 to 45 minutes later, Frazier told reporters.
