NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) – A science teacher at Noblesville West Middle School is being called a hero after reportedly tackling the shooter inside of a classroom.
The male suspect asked to be excused from class around 9 a.m. Friday, according to police, and then returned with two handguns. That's when teacher Jason Seaman reportedly tackled him.
Seaman was shot three times in the process and had to be taken to the hospital. The 29-year-old was operated on but has since gotten out of surgery and, according to police, was listed in "good" condition as of 8 p.m. Sources say he could be released as early as Saturday.
