Who is the Dalton High School teacher accused of firing a shot?

WHITFIELD COUNTY, Ga. — Jesse Randal Davidson is accused of firing a shot inside Dalton High School Wednesday morning.

Dalton police said Davidson barricaded himself in a classroom during third period and blocked the school's principal from entering.

Police spokesperson Bruce Frazier said Davidson had been with the school since 2004. He was known to many in the areas as the play-by-play voice for the school's football team.

According to the school's website, Davidson wast the voice of the Catamounts for 18 years.

He grew up around Atlanta.

In 2012, Davidson was working on a book about Dalton High School's football history.

Records show in March 2016, he went to Dalton police to confess he killed someone.

Davidson told detectives that two friends killed a woman on his behalf because he had an online affair with her.

Police were not able to verify the story.

Davidson told them he was taking medications for depression.

The report says he went to the hospital after the interview, because he was thinking about hurting himself.
