The teacher in Dalton, Georgia who fired a gun off inside of a classroom today apparently posted a meme on Facebook mocking people’s “thoughts and prayers” after the Parkland shooting – a meme that also encouraged people “do something” instead.
Citing a Dalton Police source, 11 Alive News in Atlanta has confirmed that 53-year-old Randal Davidson “barricaded himself inside of a classroom, not allowing students to enter. When the principal came to attempt to unlock the door, that’s when a shot was fired.”
While it seems no students or teachers were shot, a student was reportedly injured when she twisted her ankle while fleeing the scene.
11 Alive News continued by noting that “A shot was was fired and broke through a window and left the building, but no one was hit.” The news station also identified Davidson by his Facebook account, which shared the “Do Something” meme just 11 days ago in the wake of the horrific Parkland shooting that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School:
