Trump criticized after Georgia teacher taken into custody following school shooting

Police in Georgia have responded to a reported school shooting at Dalton High School Wednesday.

A teacher who was barricaded inside a classroom is now in custody, police say. No children were harmed, and the school has been evacuated.

Update: 

Dalton Police officials held a briefing to update the press. The teacher, identified as 53-year-old Randal Davidson, surrendered to police.

The spokesman said that it "did not appear that it was aimed at anybody."
