ROCKDALE COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A teacher is off the job after being caught on camera telling a student he'd have a bullet in his head by the age of 21.

The incident happened earlier in November at Rockdale Career Academy in Conyers.

The video shows the teacher, Paul Hagan, verbally yelling at one of the students, who can't be seen. The audio level is garbled but Hagan can be heard saying:

You screw with me, you’re going to be in big a** trouble. Don’t smile at me. That’s how people like you get shot. I got a bet. I bet by the time you’re 21, somebody’s going to put a bullet in your head. OK. And it might be me the one who does it.

You can then hear the students react to the teacher's threat.

The student's mother, April Carr, says the incident has left her child scarred and she wanted the teacher fired.

"It's scary to think that a person can go to work everyday, or to school every day and be an educator and put on one face and at any point in time they can totally flip, come out of character and this is the person they became," said Carr.

Hagan was initially on administrative leave. A spokesperson with Rockdale County Schools confirmed to CBS46 Thursday that he was no longer employed with the school district.
