At the time of the incident, elementary schools in Salem — including nearby G.W. Carver — had dismissed students for the day. However, as a precaution, Salem High School, Andrew Lewis Middle School, and the afterschool program at East Salem Elementary were reportedly placed on lockdown for about 15 minutes until police properly assessed the situation.

In addition, 48-year-old Jay Gilliland of Salem was charged with public intoxication, according to a statement shared by the city on Monday, May 23.
