BREAKING: Teacher arrested after firing a gun in a US high school

He is currently in custody.

Various US media outlets are reporting that a teacher fired a gun in Dalton High School in Georgia in the US.

Time.com states that the teacher barricaded himself into a classroom before firing a gun as a 'warning shot'.

The social studies teacher had a 45-minute standoff with officers, before the policemen were able to make their way into the school.

No students were seriously injured in the incident, except for a teenage girl who sprained her ankle while running from the gunfire.

Dalton police spokesman Bruce Frazier said that the teacher, Jesse Davidson, 53, also serves as the play-by-play announcer for the high school’s football team.

Many of the school's students are taking to social media to protest against gun violence. It comes after 17 students were killed in a Florida high school earlier this month.
