Hero Science Teacher Reportedly Tackled and Disarmed Indiana School Shooter

TV helicopter footage shows students being led out of the school and onto buses

A male student has been detained in connection with the shooting, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt said at a press conference Friday morning.

The shooter fired off several rounds before "Mr. Seaman started running at him, he's a teacher, a science teacher - he tackled him to the ground", a student, who did not wish to be identified told Fox 59.

Jeremy Seaman also confirmed to The Indianapolis Star that his younger brother was the teacher who was shot.

Seaman was struck three times and underwent surgery, according to a Facebook post by his mother.

The suspect is believed to have acted alone and was taken into custody, he said.

Chris Navarro, 13, said he was in an auditorium at Noblesville West Middle School when he heard the shots about a minute before the bell rang for the change in classes.

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted, "Karen and I are praying for the victims of the bad shooting in Indiana". "When the safety of the kids is at hand, it's not surprising to me that he was going to do what he had to do".

Jowitt said the shooting in the city of 60,000, about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis, was reported shortly after 9 a.m. She called her dad, who lives in Kokomo, to tell him she was OK.

Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker said the student was acting suspiciously when he walked into the room while the class was taking a test.

According to CNN, officials said at least three people were injured in the shooting. "When it comes down to it, we come to the realization of 'What do we do?'" Barnes said, speaking of the ongoing investigation.

"Please pray for my son Jason", Kristi Seaman wrote.

"I'd say it's something I'd see from him, he would do this type of thing, he's a really good guy", he said. The student hailed Seaman, who is also a football coach, as a hero. I want to let everyone know that I was injured but am doing great. "To all the students, you are all wonderful and I thank you for your support".

First responder vehicles and volunteers stand outside Noblesville High School.

"I got a message and a call from my daughter that's in eighth grade at West Middle School saying that there was an active shooter and that they were to evacuate the building", Landis said.

Gov. Eric J. Holcomb, who was returning from a trip to Europe, said in a statement that he was monitoring the situation and that about 100 Indiana State Police officers were made available to work with local authorities.

Officials say the teacher and student who were wounded in the attack were taken to hospitals in Indianapolis. Parents reportedly searched for their children as the middle-school students were loaded onto buses and taken to a nearby high school. The middle school has about 1,300 students from grades six through eight.
