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

US teacher arrested after firing handgun in class

Two of his friends offered to "take care of her" and he said he agreed, according to a 2016 police report.

Davidson, 53, is set to make his first court appearance Thursday at 2 pm.

- A day after Dalton High School social studies teacher Jesse Randal Davidson barricaded himself in a classroom and fired a handgun, FOX 5 News got a look inside the classroom.

A single shot was sacked, according to reports.

The program would allegedly cover the costs of background checks, drug and psychological tests, and a 132-hour training, despite the disagreement shown by Parkland's surviving teachers who noted the difficulty security officers would face in approaching another shooting if there were more armed people inside the schools. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

The incident occurs during a national debate on whether teachers should carry firearms after the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead. President Trump has advocated arming teachers.

The incident took place in a Georgia's Dalton High School on Wednesday.

"It was always about the students. He really wanted the students to understand the concept", Zeisig told The Associated Press.

Davidson was described as laid back and smart.

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

A student suffered an ankle injury while running from the school, according to Bruce Frazier with Dalton police. Students were being trampled and screaming.

"I didn't expect this", she said, describing Davidson as a nice, amusing teacher who "cares about your grade and doesn't want you to fail". Dalton was informed about the episode, according to the report.

They were excused from classes on Thursday but would be allowed on campus to retrieve personal belongings left behind in the evacuation, the school district said. The school's on-site resource officer was also summoned to help address the situation. Investigator were not able to verify this.

"Something else (may have) occurred that is causing him to have these thoughts", officers wrote.

After the interview, he was taken to the local hospital "based on him thinking about hurting himself". The police evacuated the entire school. Bartoo eventually returned with a key to the classroom, "and again he slammed the door before I could open it and he said, 'Don't come in here, I have a gun".

Neither of the two earlier police reports indicate what Davidson might have been treated for when he was taken to the hospital after those incidents.

Officers said in another report a year ago that Davidson had gone missing during a school day after telling a supervisor that he was unwell.

Under questioning by detectives, he refused to discuss what led to the shooting.

Wednesday afternoon Georgia's governor, Nathan Deal, said "Even though - thankfully - apparently no students were in danger, it's always disturbing when anything like that happens within the context of a school".
