Unarmed teacher who stopped Indiana school says he had to save students

Unarmed teacher who stopped Indiana school says he had to save students

Jason Seaman subdued a student armed with two handguns who opened fire inside his classroom May, 25, 2018.

"I want to make it clear that my actions on that day, in my mind, were the only acceptable actions I could have done given the circumstances". "I couldn't say enough times how proud of them I am".

Noblesville Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer says the community "endured a horrific and senseless tragedy".

Thankfully, Seaman was not critically injured in the incident but he was forced to have surgery following the shooting. Seaman says he acted because he cares deeply about his students.

He brushed off credit for stopping the shooter, instead praising other teachers, students and the school resource officer at the school.

IN school teacher Jason Seaman, 29, is seen in an undated photo.

NBC News-affiliate WTHR reported that President Donald Trump called Seaman on Saturday and tweeted, "His quick and automatic action is being talked about all over the world!" She says Seaman, a seventh grade teacher and football coach, "put his own life in danger" for others. Witnesses said the 29-year-old former college football player ran toward bullets as he tackled the student shooter.

"We are stronger together, and we will continue to amaze you". She also gave an update on Whistler.

Seaman suffered three gunshot wounds, as students claimed that he had "immediately ran at him [the gunman], swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground". The young girl was in critical yet stable condition, with school principal Stacey Swan adamant she's been improving.

"Wait till one day we can tell you that story", Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said, according to the AP. Seaman played for Southern Illinois from 2007-10.

The shooting at Noblesville West Middle School happened Friday morning after a student asked to be excused from class, Noblesville police said.

If not for his Seaman's heroics, one student told reporters, "more of us could have been injured, for sure".

For the first time since the shooting, classes will resume Tuesday at district schools except for Noblesville West Middle School.

It's very reasonable to be nervous about going back to school tomorrow for Noblesville Schools students after the events on Friday.
