IN teacher hailed as hero after disarming school shooter speaks out

The suspected shooter, a student at Noblesville West Middle School, asked to be excused from class Friday morning and then returned to the room armed with two handguns, Noblesville police said.

"Her courage and strength at such a young age is nothing short of remarkable", the teacher said.

When a middle school boy allegedly opened fire at his IN school, the science teacher immediately ran and tackled him to the ground, one student IN the classroom told ABC News.

An Indiana teacher who was shot while tackling an armed student says he wants the public to focus on a 13-year-old girl who was seriously injured in the classroom shooting.

Seaman has since been released from the hospital.

A police officer assigned to the school was on duty and in the building, according to police, but students say it was Seaman, a former college football player, who subdued the attacker. He didn't disclose any details of the shooting and declined to take questions from reporters.

"On Friday, we endured a horrific and senseless tragedy that had a significant impact on this community", said Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, Superintendent Noblesville Schools.

Trump discloses United States dollars 250000 reimbursement to Cohen
The president's tax returns would give a clear picture, but Trump has broken with tradition by refusing to make them public. Though it was published three decades ago, Trump's "The Art of The Deal" past year generated as much as $1 million.

Seaman deflected praise and gave credit to a quick-responding school resource officer; an "unbelievably courageous colleague" who entered his room and helped the wounded student; and the student who fought for her life after getting shot. "I care for my students and their well-being so that's why I did what I did that day".

Seaman's mother, Kristi J. Hubly Seaman, said in a Facebook post that he had been shot three times: once through the abdomen, and once affecting his hip and forearm. School principal Stacey Swan said Monday that Whistler is improving.

It wasn't long before Seaman deflected attention away from himself and toward the Noblesville student that was also shot in the incident, Ella Whistler.

"Immediately Mr. Seaman was yelling and running right at him and tackled him to the ground", Ethan said.

Along with Whistler's family, Seaman also thanked all of the first responders and the support he's received from his students.

The shooting happened Friday morning at Noblesville West Middle School.
