  • Teacher out of hospital after stopping school shooting

Someone opened fire at a suburban Indianapolis middle school Friday morning, injuring an adult and a child before the suspect was taken into custody, authorities said.

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday thanking Seaman 'for his heroic act in saving so many precious young lives.

"Karen and I are praying for the victims of the bad shooting in Indiana. Thanks for the swift response by Hoosier law enforcement and first responders".

"Our daughter, Ella Whistler, was involved in a horrific shooting today at her school".

Lindsey Hall, who was Seaman's middle-school principal before becoming superintendent of the Mahomet-Seymour school district, said it was unsurprising that Seaman "rose to the occasion" Friday morning.

Parents had been instructed to pick up the middle school students at the high school.

Seaman was hit three times - once through the hip, once through the forearm and once through the abdomen, according to a Facebook post by his mother, Kristin Hubly Seaman.


The ex-college football player-turned-high school teacher who player hero during a school shooting Friday in IN has been released from the hospital. "Itreally came into realization what was happening when the person right in front of me got shot".

"He's a hero. If he didn't do anything, he probably would have continued shooting and a lot more of us would have been injured and possibly killed", a student said.

A teacher is being credited with disarming a student suspected of opening fire at an IN middle school. "If it wasn't for him, more of us could have been injured, for sure", said the boy, whose name and face were not shown.

"Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground", Ethan Stonebreaker, a seventh-grade student at the school, told the Associated Press. The former college football player who doubles as a football coach and science teacher is being called a hero after putting himself between his students and the bullets. The officer shot and wounded the suspect, who was arrested before anyone else could be injured. "I went into this little room in the back with three other people", he said calmly standing between his parents as they picked him up. "We are also however aware of a second threat that's been made at Nobleville High School". "We continue to keep Jason and his family in our thoughts and prayers as he recovers from this tragic event, as well as all of the communities impacted by school violence".

"But then when it happens you want it to somehow be prevented from happening again", he said.

"Our thoughts are with all those affected by this terrible situation".
