  • Cops: Teacher In Custody After Barricading Self In Classroom With Gun

Both reports were posted late Wednesday by the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

In January 2017, Davidson was reported missing after telling his supervisor he was sick, and then disappearing from school.

Students were allowed to return to Dalton High School Thursday morning to pick up their personal belongings, with classes set to resume Friday.

The NRA has also supported the idea of arming teachers.

School spokesperson Pat Holloway said the superintendent was aware of all of that but she could not comment on what sort of help Davidson might have received.

Davidson was charged with aggravated assault, carrying weapon on school grounds, terroristic threats, reckless conduct, possession of gun during commission of a crime and disrupting public school.

He waived his first appearance at Whitfield County Superior Court on Thursday afternoon.

Jail records do not indicate whether he has an attorney.

Who is Randal Davidson, the Dalton teacher arrested for shooting a gun in school? Davidson has authored two books on the history of Dalton High football. DO NOT go to Dalton High School.

Student Emma Jacobs texted her mother while she hid inside a darkened classroom, said her mother, Annmarie Jacobs. Shaking, she pulled over on the roadside.

The teacher who caused mass panic when he fired a gun at a Georgia high school had been the subject of multiple police reports in recent years. including one instance where he told officers he had killed a woman.

Police affirmed that the educator was Jesse Randal Davidson, 53. No one was hurt by the gunfire.

Police have not said why he fired the gun.

Shootings in schools have been increasing in the past with innocent school kids being the victims.




It was unclear what led the teacher to lock himself inside the classroom.

The school went on lockdown following the gunshot.

Police said the note was found February 21, and mentioned a threat against the school the following day. One bullet had been fired through an exterior window of the classroom.

WRCB reports that no students were inside the classroom at the time.

It is not clear if Davidson meant to hurt himself or any of the students.

Police did not say what type of firearm was used but confirmed it was a handgun.

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.

Police aren't saying WHY a North Georgia teacher allegedly brought a handgun to school and fired it out a classroom window. But police said they investigated and were not able to verify that any of the information was true.

The police have taken the teacher into custody.

The student was treated by the EMS at the school.

FRAZIER: "There were a lot officers on scene very quickly, and they immediately made entry into the school".

The incident occurred two weeks after a shooting incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., left 17 dead, and as its survivors are igniting a new debate over gun control around the United States.

Police have arrested an armed teacher who barricaded himself in a classroom and fired his gun, forcing the evacuation of a high school in the U.S. state of Georgia.
