Indiana School Shooting: Hero Teacher Recovering After Tackling Student Gunman

Suspect In Custody After Shooting At Indiana Middle School

Mr Seaman was released from hospital a day after the shooting.

His brother wasn't shocked that Jason intervened, telling the Indianapolis Star, "It's not surprising, to be honest". Brooks said she had "just met" Seaman.

Erica Higgins was at Noblesville High School to pick up her son after Friday morning's shooting at Noblesville West Middle School, which she learned about at home when a relative called her.

Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker said the science teacher likely prevented even more injuries by confronting the shooter, who he said pulled out a gun and opened fire after walking in late while the class was taking a test. A student said he watched Jason Seaman run toward the gunman and tackle him to the ground after he fired several shots into a classroom.

Noblesville Police Department has confirmed that a teacher and child suffered gunshot wounds during an active shooter situation at West Middle School, near Morse Reservoir. Jason Seaman was released from Indiana University Health on Saturday (May 26) afternoon, CBS affiliate WTTV reports. A 13-year-old girl was shot and is in critical condition. Seaman attended the Southern Illinois University and played football there from 2007-2010 under ex-Gopher football head coach Jerry Kill.

"I especially remember that he would throw himself on top of the shooter if he had to", she said.

Janna Lynas, Mac's mother, said Seaman cares about the kids.

"He was a great teammate, one of the team's hardest workers", Hill said on Twitter.

The Associated Press reported that Seaman was once a college football player.

"You are the reason I teach", he said. However, The photographer who spoke to Rousey stated, "I'm sure a lot of his students follow you, and it would be an honor for him to walk out to the ring with you one time".

Seaman's actions came "as no surprise to...those who know Jason", the school district Seaman attended in IL said in a statement to WISH. "You could always trust him to do the right thing".

This is the 17th school shooting this year and fourth of the month.

He was transported following the shooting Friday (May 25) morning at Noblesville West Middle School.

Following a lockdown at the middle school due to the shooting, students were taken by bus to Noblesville High School.

The shooting comes on the one-week anniversary of the Santa Fe High School shooting that left ten people dead and thirteen wounded. We will spend the next days and weeks processing what happened and why, ' the family said.
