Georgia Tech players on lockdown after school shooting


Two Georgia Tech football players were on lockdown Tuesday after a school shooting left a man dead and another injured, but officials said the situation had been under control.

The Georgia Tech men’s basketball team announced that it was reopening for practices Wednesday.

It is the first day in four years that the school has been open.

The lockdown began about 1 p.m. at the school’s football complex in DeKalb County, Ga.

Police were investigating the shooting at the DeKalbs High School.

The school said that all of its students were accounted for.

The students are not currently in school.

Georgia Tech coach Chris Ash tweeted that his team had been “overwhelmed” by the response.

The tweet read, “We are currently under lockdown due to a shooting at our campus.

We have no information to confirm the identity of the shooter, nor are we confirming that he is currently at large.

Please stay with us as we work through this situation.”

Ash tweeted several messages on Tuesday evening: “Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and support.

This is a difficult time for all of us, our families, friends, and our community.”

He said that he and the Georgia Tech athletic department would continue to do their best to assist with the recovery effort.

“It is too early to speculate about what led up to this tragedy, but we will remain vigilant and focused on this investigation.

The safety of our students, staff, and faculty is our number one priority,” Ash tweeted.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims of this tragedy and their loved ones.”

The school reopened Tuesday morning and is still open for business.
