Teacher who stopped shooting says he had to act

Teacher who stopped shooting says he had to act

A teacher who was shot while tackling and disarming a student at an IN school said Monday that his swift decisions "were the only acceptable actions" to save his seventh-grade classroom.

"I want to make it clear that my actions on that day, in my mind, were the only acceptable actions I could've done given the circumstances", Seaman said.

"I can't say enough how proud of Ella I am and how we all should be", said Seaman.

Noblesville Schools Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer said her district will provide counseling throughout the summer and into next school year.

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 he says his steps that day "were the only acceptable actions" to save his students. The 29-year-old football coach and former college defensive lineman reacted nearly immediately, running at the teen and tackling him to the ground as he told students to dial 911.

"I deeply care for my students and their wellbeing", the 7th-grade science teacher said at a Monday morning press conference. The school principal, Stacey Swan, said the student was improving.

Fortunately, Twitter users are keeping Jason Seaman in mind-as an example of the kind of courage, honor, and action in an era of inaction that we should all collectively strive toward.

Ethan Stonebraker, a student witness, said the shooter was acting suspiciously when he walked into the classroom while the class was taking a test Friday.

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

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.

Jeremy Seaman told The Indianapolis Star that his brother was shot three times and underwent surgery.

Seaman played for Southern Illinois from 2007 to 2010 as a defensive end, tallying 88 tackles and eight sacks with two forced fumbles in 47 games for the Salukis. His actions saved the lives of many kids that were present in his class today.

A science teacher who was shot while tackling an armed student at a suburban Indianapolis middle school is scheduled to speak about the incident.

The shooting happened Friday morning at Noblesville West Middle School.
