“A social studies teacher barricaded himself inside a classroom at a Georgia high school on Wednesday February 28, and fired a handgun once in what may have been a warning shot”, authorities said.
No students were in the classroom at the time, and the only injury reported was a student who hurt her ankle running when Dalton High School was evacuated.
The teacher, Jesse Randal Davidson, was taken into custody without incident after a 30- to 45-minute standoff with officers, Dalton police spokesman Bruce Frazier said. Davidson, 53, serves as the play-by-play announcer for the high school’s football team, police said in a tweet.
Police didn’t immediately say why Davidson fired the gun, but noted that he aimed away from anyone into an exterior window as the principal tried to unlock the classroom door. After the gunshot, the school was immediately placed on lockdown.
“I don’t know whether he was just firing the gun off to let people know to back off or what,” Frazier said.
It’s not clear what charges Davidson will face.
