Police ID suspect accused of shooting 10 Georgia elementary students with pellet gun

Georgia News

(WXIA) — A suspect has been identified after students were injured from pellet gun while they were playing outside at Wynbrooke Elementary School in DeKalb County, Georgia. 

DeKalb County School District Police did not release the person’s name, but they did say they secured a search warrant for their home, where they found a pellet gun they believe was involved in the incident. 

Even though the suspect is in custody several parents didn’t feel safe bringing their children to school.

Tesla McCray, who’s 7-year-old daughter was shot, decided to keep her children at home to help them get through what happened saying, “She was confused. She was, you know, shocked and shutdown. So I played with her a little bit, tried to make it easy on her.”

The elementary school has resumed normal operations, after having a heightened police presence at the school Friday, and students were still able to play outside on the campus’ two playgrounds with three DeKalb County School District Police officers standing by.
