Dekalb County Police Officers are reporting that one man is in custody after brandishing a gun at McNair Elementary School in Decatur, Georgia. It is unclear at this time if any shots were fired but school officials are now indicating that no students have been injured. The incident was initially reported as an active shooter incident based on a statement by a school board member. Our school security experts regularly work school weapons incidents and are concerned that people have become conditioned to think of active shooter incidents as the most common school security incidents when they are in fact rare events.
