Molotov cocktails tossed into Paulding County middle school

Two Molotov cocktails were thrown into a Paulding County middle school early today. Neither ignited and no one was injured, according to City of Dallas police.

But investigators want to find those responsible, Sgt. Bill Gorman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Shortly after 5 a.m., police were called to Herschel Jones Middle School after people were spotted throwing a incendiary device at the door of the library, Gorman said. The device did not ignite.

The suspects then allegedly broke a library window and tossed a second device into the building, Gorman said. This device also did not ignite, he said.

“The flame went out and the flammable liquid poured out into a chair,” Gorman said.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting Dallas police with the investigation. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Gorman at 770-443-8327 or email him at
