Family of victim releases statement after Noblesville shooting

He went on to play at Southern Illinois University.

The shooting was reported just after 9 a.m. local time at the middle school in Indiana.

A student armed with two handguns shot a teacher and a fellow student at a middle school in IN on Friday, police said, the latest in a series of shootings at United States schools and colleges fuelling debate about how to keep campuses safe.

Vice President, Mike Pence also tweeted about the shooting, writing, "Karen and I are praying for the victims of the bad shooting in Indiana".

The family of the student injured during a school shooting in IN says she is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.

The incident occurred a week after a 17-year-old high school student in Santa Fe, Texas, near Houston shot and killed eight classmates and two teachers.

Stonebraker told ABC News that Seaman threw a basketball at the shooter and ran toward the bullets as screaming students sought cover behind a table.

Seaman thwarted the shooter by knocking at least one gun out of the suspect's hands and tackled him to the ground.

A teacher was praised as a hero on Friday after taking quick action to subdue a student shooter in his classroom.

Helicopter footage showed dozens of police officers milling around the school. "You'll be proud of them, too". "We share their hope for his full and fast recovery as well the recovery of the student who was also injured".

North Korea summit could still happen on 12 June
Kim Jong-un's comments published by the newspaper did not include any mention of his potential meeting with Trump. US officials appeared to be pressing ahead in the belief that the summit remains on the table.

"I'd say it's something I'd see from him, he would do this type of thing, he's a really good guy", he said.

"To all the students, you are all wonderful and I thank you for your support". "A teacher going directly towards a student with a gun and saying I'm going to stop this. Wow".

Seaman's mother said in a public Facebook post that Seaman was shot in his abdomen, hip and forearm.

Multiple parents interviewed by IndyStar identified Seaman as the teacher.

His brother Jeremy said he was not surprised to learn that it was him who was involved.

"It's not surprising, to be honest", he said.

A former Southern Illinois defensive lineman is being hailed as a hero on Friday, as he put himself in danger to protect the lives of his students. Students were transported to the high school to be picked up by parents. Jeremy told the newspaper.

"He's familiar with struggle and adversity", his brother said.

"He was a great teammate, one of the team's hardest workers", Hill said in a tweet from SIU athletics Friday.
