United States teacher arrested after firing handgun in class

Teacher in custody after reports of shots fired at Dalton High School 132018

He added that the teacher would face "appropriate charges because this is a very egregious act that took place at the school".

While no one was injured by the gunshot, one student was injured during the hectic evacuation of the high school.

The families of the teen survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting gathered to support students returning class for the first time Thursday (AEDT).

"I just thought about my daughter", mother Topeka White said. She said she's hoping to bring about real change. Davidson, who has already been arrested by the police, has been charged with multiple counts.

Davidson has been accused of "exasperated strike, conveying weapon on school grounds, terroristic dangers, neglectful direct, ownership of firearm amid commission of a wrongdoing, and upsetting state funded school", as per Dalton Police.

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

What to Look for at the 90th Annual Academy Awards
However, the category itself is hardly competitive; none of the other nominees stand a chance against the film " Coco ". The Oscars will be held on Sunday and will air live in India on Monday on Star Movies and Star Movies Select HD.

According to police spokesman Bruce Frazier, Davidson was eventually taken into custody after a 45-minute standoff with officers. Davidson has authored two books on the history of Dalton High football. The high school campus is less than a mile from the Dalton Police Department headquarters.

Emma then texted her mum, 'omg she's putting a desk in front of the door'.

The Georgia teacher who cops say barricaded himself in a classroom and fired a handgun through a window had once said that he had a woman killed, but it was believed he was "delusional". In a press conference he said that when he attempted to enter the classroom with a key, 53-year-old Randal Davidson slammed the door shut and yelled at him to not come inside.

One student who injured her ankle as the school was being evacuated was treated by medics at the school.

A "threatening" note was found last week at the school but wasn't immediately clear whether the note was related to the shooting yesterday.

"We don't allow anyone in a classroom unless they are capable of doing their job and fit for their position", school system spokeswoman Pat Holloway said.

Walmart followed suit a short while later, announcing that they, too, were raising the age to purchase a gun to 21. Dick's stock price was little changed as of midafternoon Wednesday afternoon, up 1.7 per cent.

"There is a barricaded subject in a classroom".

That's when Davidson fired and the school was placed on lockdown, authorities said.

Hours later that same day he was found near the intersection of School and April streets, nearly a mile's walk away.

Wednesday's incident wasn't his first unusual interaction with law enforcement in Dalton, a city of nearly 35,000 residents about 80 miles northwest of Atlanta.

According to witness testimonies, Davidson was seen pointing the weapon away from people and out an exterior window when he fired.

No students were in the classroom.

Schaaf said in a tweet Tuesday that she did not regret her decision to share information regarding ICE operations. The Fresno County arrests were two of more than 230 that ranged from the OR border to Bakersfield over four days.

Interestingly, judging by the tweets on social media following the incident, Davidson appeared to be popular among the students, who all expressed disbelieve and fear at what had happened.
