Authorities said the suspect in a shooting at a suburban Indianapolis middle school shooting is a male student and the injured victims are a teacher and another student. He said the class was taking a science test when the student shooter came into the classroom and fired "four to six" times before Seaman subdued him. An unnamed student said that Seaman tackled the shooter.
Police said on Friday they were investigating the shooter's motive and how he obtained the guns.
The middle school students were evacuated to Noblesville High School, which has been locked down because of a new threat.
Heartbreakingly, one student who survived said afterwards that she had a "gut feeling" a shooter would open fire at their school "eventually".
Various friends, confirming the identity of the victim, said she is active in the middle school's choir and show choir, where her outgoing personality is a big presence. The suspect in that shooting, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a 17-year-old student at the school, is also alleged to have placed rudimentary bombs in the area.
The incident was the latest in a rash of school shootings that has plagued the United States and sparked a student-led movement to change gun laws.
That adult has been identified as science teacher Jason Seaman. But first, we wanted to say she is doing well at Riley Hospital for Children.
Canada PM raps possible U.S. auto tariffs, says linked to NAFTA
Trump brought a little-used weapon to his fight to protect auto workers: Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962. Trump's past use of tariffs and threats of tariffs irked free trade advocates, including many in his Republican Party.
Jason Seaman, 29, a former football player at Southern Illinois University and a 13-year-old female student were wounded by gunfire in the shooting, which broke out around 9 a.m. on Friday morning at a middle school in Noblesville, a town of 62,000 just northeast of Indianapolis.
Footage of the students begin loaded onto buses and driven away from the scene of the tragic shooting was revealed in early news reports of the shooting.
"He's a hero", the student said.
Police confirmed that threats were also made to surrounding middle schools.
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".
"He said, 'I'm OK, please come get me.' That was probably 20 minutes after it happened", Morris said.
"We need to get it right", Barnes said.
