Teachey allegedly fled.

During his interview with police, Teachey said when he raised the gun toward the occupants of the room, it went off. The witnesses were also interviewed.

Teachey was charged with criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, and persons not to possess firearms. He is housed at Franklin County Jail.
