Noblesville Indiana school shooting

Noblesville Indiana school shooting

Though no longer a student at Noblesville West, the freshman said she has friends who still attend the middle school and she feared for their safety but thanked Seaman for his heroic acts.

Multiple students told WEWS that Seaman intervened and stopped the shooter.

Higgins said her son was shaken up but knew little about what happened.

Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt said at a news conference the gunman was a male student at Noblesville West Middle School.

Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker said the class was taking a test when the student walked in late, pulled out a gun and started firing.

He said Seaman immediately ran at the student, 'swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground'.

According to the New York Post, Seaman, who is a father of two, was shot through the abdomen, hip, and forearm, and was taken to the hospital. But hospital officials said at least three people, including one adult, were being treated. Jason Seaman was released from Indiana University Health on Saturday (May 26) afternoon, CBS affiliate WTTV reports.

The only other person shot, student Ella Whistler, was in critical but stable condition, according to her family.

A "third party" recommended Cohen to Novartis, Jimenez said, declining to identify that person. Novartis should have done more due diligence, he said.

Jowitt said that the school employs a full-time school resource officer, but does not know if he was involved in the shooting.

Seaman himself thanked police and medics and said he was "doing great" in a separate statement.

He said Seaman led by example as one of the hardest workers on the field and in the classroom.

The student hailed Seaman, who is also a football coach, as a hero.

"We're all proud of you Jason and are praying for you and those impacted and recovering from injuries", Pence said in his own tweet.

Mac Lynas, a seventh-grader who also played football this year for Seaman, agreed.

At least two people have been injured in a school shooting in Indiana. "You could always trust him to do the right thing", head coach Nick Hill said. The middle school has about 1,300 students from grades six to eight.

The shooting comes on the one-week anniversary of the Santa Fe High School shooting that left ten people dead and thirteen wounded. Doug Carter, Indiana State Police superintendent, declined to elaborate on Seaman's role.

A science teacher tackled the Noblesville, Indiana school shooter Friday morning, suffering three gunshot wounds but probably saving multiple lives in the process, The Indianapolis Star is reporting. The school's academic year was scheduled to end next Friday.
