Individuals line up inside the Dalton Convention Center to get their children on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, in Dalton, Ga. Trainees from Dalton High School were left to the convention center after social studies teacher Randal Davidson barricaded himself in a class and fired a handgun, authorities said.

Thursday, March 1, 2018|9:01 a.m.

ATLANTA– Police state they have no idea why a popular teacher supposedly fired a handgun inside his class, causing a disorderly lockdown and evacuation of his Georgia high school. However it instantly pierced the nationwide dispute over whether educators ought to be armed.

As officers jailed Dalton High School social research studies instructor Jesse Randal Davidson, his trainees spoke their minds on social media.

“My favorite instructor at Dalton high school simply blockaded his door and continued to shoot. We needed to go out the back of the school in the rain. Students were being stomped and screaming. I dare you to inform me arming instructors will make us safe,” trainee Chondi Chastain composed in a tweet rapidly shared thousands of times.

Davidson, 53, is accused of barricading himself inside a classroom and shooting a pistol, sending students running outdoors or hunching down inside darkened class and a gym locker room. He was apprehended without event after a 30- to 45-minute standoff with officers, and his inspirations stayed a mystery, Dalton Police spokesperson Bruce Frazier stated.

“Mr. Davidson did not offer us much info about exactly what his motives were or exactly what may or may not have been the issue today,” Frazier said after detectives had actually spoken with the instructor.

Twice recently, Dalton cops state they encountered the instructor showing odd behavior and composed in one report that he “may be delusional.” However Principal Steve Bartoo called Davidson an “excellent instructor” and said that “as far as I know he was fit to be at work.”

Classes were cancelled at the high school Thursday due to the shooting, although grief counselors were being offered and the trainees, who number about 2,000, were being enabled back into recover their valuables. Classes were to resume on Friday, the school district revealed.

The shooting erupted with a nation on edge following a Florida school shooting that killed 17 students and professors and sparked a brand-new debate over weapon control. President Donald Trump, who has advocated arming teachers, assembled a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House to deal with gun violence on Wednesday afternoon.

Several Dalton students are tweeting their outrage that some on Twitter concern whether the incident was staged. And Emma Gonzalez, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student whose passionate criticism of legislators has acquired her more than 1.15 million Twitter followers, responded by tweeting “LISTEN TO United States FOR GOD’S SAKE, DO THE TRAINEES OF AMERICA REALLY MATTER THIS LITTLE TO YOU ???”

Meanwhile, Dalton trainee Nathangel Lopez was hunched down with classmates and instructors in a fitness center locker room, tweeting a picture of teenagers resting on benches and required more gun control.

“This shouldn’t take place to us,” he composed. “I hope a legislator somewhere will do something.”

When he discovered that a teacher was included, he moved his position on equipping educators.

“Initially, I was thinking that may have been a good idea. I am now absolutely against it,” he said.

Davidson himself had commented that arming teachers was a bad idea, Chastain told The Associated Press after sending her tweet.

“I seem like there simply should not be weapons at school at all,” she stated. “It’s our fundamental trainee right to feel safe at school and if (instructors were armed), I wouldn’t feel safe.”

Authorities noted that Davidson didn’t appear to wish to injure the students or professors. He fired the gun at an outside window when the principal aimed to get in the classroom.

“I have no idea whether he was just firing the weapon off to let people understand to back off or what,” Frazier said.

However, the gunshot took a trip throughout the street and into a hill neighborhood neglecting part of the city, where the bullet could have struck somebody, Frazier stated.

Two times in recent years, Dalton police state they came across the instructor showing odd behavior.

Davidson had strolled into the authorities department informing a rambling story about thinking a murder had actually taken place, however officers weren’t able to confirm if anything he stated was true. They composed in a 2016 report that after their interview, Davidson was taken to a healthcare facility “based on him thinking of harming himself.”

Then, last year, officers discovered Davidson during a school day, sitting on the curb of a street, mindful however unresponsive and being held up by 2 school team member. He was once again required to a health center. Both cops reports were published by the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Wednesday’s gunfire took place about 11:30 a.m., throughout Davidson’s preparation duration. Trainees notified the principal after they could not get in.

“I didn’t get the door open extremely far, but he slammed the door and hollered ‘Disappear, do not can be found in here.’ He had some ridiculous noises that were made also,” Bartoo stated.

Bartoo returned a short time later on and put his key in the door “and again he slammed the door before I could open it and he said, ‘Do not can be found in here, I have a weapon.'”

That’s when Davidson fired and the school was put on lockdown, authorities said.

Davidson was described as laid back and clever. In 2012, he was recognized as the school’s top teacher, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Now he deals with 6 charges, including aggravated attack including a weapon and terroristic risks and acts, prison records showed. Other charges consist of bring a weapon in a school security zone and careless conduct. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
