Shooting Reported at Indiana Middle School, Two Injured, Suspect in Custody

Shooting Reported at Indiana Middle School, Two Injured, Suspect in Custody

It came as panicked middle school parents were rushing to the high school to pick up their kids, who had been bused there.

One teen and a teacher were injured Friday in a middle-school shooting about 30 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

"We believe he is the involved suspect", Jowitt said.

A statement from the Indiana State Teachers Association said thoughts and prayers aren't enough to keep students and educators safe. A number of officers were deployed to the high school to examine the threat. Authorities believe there are no other suspects, but have revealed that there have been additional threats made at other schools in the area, including Noblesville High School.

When asked to elaborate on his praise of response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait 'til one day we can tell you that story". Police said the student was apprehended in the classroom. "I went into this little room in the back with three other people", he said calmly standing between his parents as they picked him up. Stonebraker adds, "if it weren't for him, more of us would have been injured for sure".

Police did not provide details of the incident.

A mother was so shaken up that she had to be driven to the suburban Indianapolis middle school where a teacher and student were injured in a shooting.

"Please pray for my son", she said in the social media post.

He added: "I love my life, it's been fantastic but there have been a lot of struggles to get to this point". It scared the living daylights out of me, because the last time it almost killed me, frankly.


Chief Kevin Jowitt of the Noblesville, Ind., police said officers received a call of an active shooter at Noblesville West Middle School just after 9 a.m.

He said the shooter "was apprehended in the classroom or thereabouts" and that authorities are still working to learn what that process looked like.

"She kept saying, 'I saw my teacher get shot, '" a parent recalled his daughter saying. Arrangements for students returning to school in the coming days were still in process, Barnes and Niedermeyer said.

Families of the victims have been notified, said Indiana State Police spokesman Sgt. John Perrine.

"He's a hero. If he didn't do anything he probably would have continued shooting and a lot more of us would have been injured and possibly killed, so it was just something that not most people would have done but he was really fearless to do it", he said.

This item has been corrected to reflect that the shooting was at a middle school, not a hospital.

"I got a "Mom, I'm scared" text message and other than that, it was 'come get me at the high school, '" Higgins said.
