Teacher Fired Gun In A Classroom And Barricaded Himself At Georgia High School
March 1, 2018
A social studies teacher, who was well-liked by students, barricaded himself inside a classroom at Dalton high school in Georgia on Wednesday and fired a handgun out of a window, sending students running outside or hiding down in darkened gym locker rooms.
The police in Dalton reported that the classroom where the incident happened was empty at that time. No one was injured except one student who hurt her ankle running away.
The teacher was 53-year-old Jesse Randal Davidson. He taught social studies and served as play-by-play voice of the school's football team. Davidson had been working at the school since 2004 and was called "top teacher" in 2012.
