Teacher who stopped shooting: ‘I had to save students’

Teacher Jason Seaman a former defensive end for the Southern Illinois college football team subdued a student who opened fire with handguns on Friday in Seaman's science classroom at Noblesville West Middle School in Noblesville Indiana

A student, Ella Whistler, was also shot.

Jason Seaman was wounded during the shooting, but he was recently released from the hospital.

Molly Miles, a Noblesville High School freshman, told the IndyStar that she remembered Seaman telling the class that he would keep them safe in the event of a shooting. "And he did something that most people would never dare to do".

One student fractured an ankle during Friday's active shooter situation, while Seaman-and 13-year-old student, Ella Whistler-were shot.

"I can't say enough how proud of Ella I am and how we all should be", Seaman said Monday. "He saved the lives of so many students". "His quick and automatic action is being talked about all over the world!"

"We are stronger together, and we will continue to amaze you".

"My actions on that day, in my mind, were the only acceptable actions I could have done", said Seaman, a 7th-grade science teacher at Noblesville West Middle School.

Rousey responded to the question, "I mean that would be up to him. There was potential for a lot of lives being lost", Lynas said Saturday. The school district's superintendent says Ella is making progress in her recovery while hospitalized in Indianapolis. The teen is in critical but stable condition and was recovering, school officials said.


"Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground", seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker told the Associated Press.

The baseball game was originally going to be moved from Noblesville, but the IHSAA made a decision to keep it there to honor Jason Seaman, student Ella Whistler, as well as all of the faculty and students at Noblesville West Middle School.

According to MSN, Seaman's brother, Jeremy, wouldn't have expected anything less.

Investigators said the shooter had asked to be dismissed from the class before returning with two guns.

Hours after the shooting, law enforcement agents sealed off part of an upscale neighborhood in Noblesville but weren't commenting on whether the suspect lived there. That school will be open from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.to provide counseling to students and their families.

Authorities referred to a prompt and heroic response at the school but didn't confirm accounts of Seaman tackling the student or describe the role of the resource officer who was stationed at the school. "He pretty much protected all of us and it's something that you couldn't ask more of".

The shooting happened Friday morning at Noblesville West Middle School.

Seaman thanked Ramsey for starting the campaign. He said his girlfriend's sister was in a classroom adjacent to the shooting.
