60 year old Manuael Earnest Dillow, a vocational school teacher in Virginia has been charged with 12 counts of felony charges for brandishing a firearm. Dillow allegedly lined up 12 welding students and shot multiple times from a gun loaded with blanks at the students. Dillow- a welding teacher at William H. Neff Center, faces up to five years in jail and a $2,500 fine for the Class 6 felonies.
The students had no way of knowing if the gun was real or not and they were very frightened by the incident.
Manuael Earnest Dillow, 60, was charged last week with 12 felony counts of brandishing a firearm on school property following the April 4 incident at the William H. Neff Center, a career and technical school, in Abingdon, Va.
A teacher at a Virginia vocational school has been charged with terrifying a dozen students by lining them up against a classroom wall and firing a starter pistol at them execution-style. After lining up the students, "He then pulled a 'blank firing handgun,' black in color, from the back waistband of his pants and discharged the weapon between four and ten shots in the direction of the line of the students," police said in a press release.”
