The Dalton, Georgia teacher who barricaded himself in his classroom before opening fire inside the school has been charged with making terroristic threats and five other charges.


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday that 53-year-old Randal Davidson, who taught social studies and was a play-by-play announcer at Dalton High School football games, was charged with aggravated assault, carrying a weapon on school grounds, terroristic threats, reckless conduct, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and disrupting a public school.

Dalton, who had been at the school since 2004, did not hurt any students.

Hours after the incident, which began around 11:30 Eastern time, President Donald Trump doubled down on his suggestion that teachers should be armed. He has not yet acknowledged the Dalton High firearm discharge.
