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.

This is a developing story. We do not have the facts. We do not know what happened. Police are still investigating.

Yet without the facts, individuals on social media are using the shooting to criticize President Donald Trump’s proposal to permit armed teachers or faculty in schools.

This is a developing story.

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