'Hero' Indiana Teacher Says Confronting School Shooter Was ‘the Only Acceptable Action’

  • The teacher who stopped a shooting at Noblesville West Middle School Friday said his actions were in his mind

By Saturday he had been discharged from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and was photographed at Noblesville West Middle School shaking hands with U.S. Rep. Susan W. Brooks.

In addition to Ella, Seaman highlighted the actions of an "unbelievably brave" school resource officer who quickly reached the classroom and helped Ella as she fought for her life.

Seaman, 29, was hailed as a hero Friday after students say he subdued a student who had asked to be excused from class at Noblesville Middle School West, then returned with two handguns and opened fire. Lynas said Seaman emphasised character previous year when he coached her son.

Seaman, who has been a teacher and football coach at the middle school for four years, immediately ran at the gunman and tackled him to the ground, according to seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker, who was in the classroom at the time. He told ABC News that Seaman threw a basketball at the shooter and ran toward the bullets as screaming students sought cover behind a table.

The teacher, Jason Seaman, spoke publicly for the first time since the shooting on Friday, and thanked the Noblesville community for its support.

Seaman was shot as he tackled the armed student.

"I can't say enough how proud of Ella I am and how we all should be", Seaman continued. She says Seaman, "put his own life in danger" for others.

The threat is typical of Trump's "brinkmanship" negotiating style, she added, and not necessarily indicative of his intentions. Trump brought a little-used weapon to his fight to protect auto workers: Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

Fortunately, Twitter users are keeping Jason Seaman in mind-as an example of the kind of courage, honor, and action in an era of inaction that we should all collectively strive toward.

Students were bused to the Noblesville High School gym, where hundreds of parents and other family members arrived to retrieve them.

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

The attack came a week after a shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers, and months after the high school attack that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida.

On Monday, Noblesville Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer said the wounded student was "making progress".

Seaman thanked Ramsey for starting the campaign. And it's an alarming way to end a year marred by school shootings across the country.
