Hero teacher: Tackling, disarming gunman

A school nurse and a school resource officer immediately provided medial attention to the injured, said Noblesville West Middle School Principal Stacey Shaw.

"I'm still processing much of what has happened", Seaman said, before referencing the middle school's "Miller Shift" academic philosophy.

He spoke Monday for the first time since the shooting Friday at Noblesville West Middle School in Noblesville, Indiana. Whistler remains in critical but stable condition. The 29-year-old football coach and former college defensive lineman reacted nearly immediately, running at the teen and tackling him to the ground as he told students to dial 911.

Seaman was trying to protect the students in his seventh-grade classroom while also attempting to disarm the shooter on Friday.

IN middle school teacher Jason Seaman has been released from a hospital after suffering gunshot wounds as he tackled a shooter on Friday, according to Rep. Susan Brooks, R-Ind. His shirt also showed the initials EW, honoring injured student Ella Whistler.

President Donald Trump praised Seaman on Twitter Saturday, calling him a "very courageous Teacher & Hero" for his "automatic action".

There are several legal routes and steps the Dutch and Australian governments could take - but none are going to be easy. Investigation officials, seeking to bring criminal charges, have not said who actually fired the missile.

School officials say a 13-year-old student who was critically wounded during a shooting at her IN middle school is improving.

Seaman thanked Ramsey for starting the campaign. That school will be open from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.to provide counseling to students and their families.

Swan said the school would emerge from Friday's shooting stronger than before. Before becoming a high school teacher and coach, Seaman played for the Southern Illinois football team.

Police say the suspected shooter, a student at the school, asked to be excused from class and then returned to the room armed with two handguns.

When asked to elaborate on his praise of the response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait 'til one day we can tell you that story". He said his girlfriend's sister was in a classroom adjacent to the shooting. In 2018 alone, there have already been 17 shootings - the highest number during any year since at least 1999, according to a Washington Post database that tracks such attacks.
