She said she wasn't surprised to hear that Seaman intervened to save students. "Our hearts go out to his family, friends and students", Montemagno said.

On Friday morning, officers also responded to another "communicated threat" at Noblesville High School, but Jowitt said police believed that's nothing beyond a threat.

Jowitt said a male student asked to be excused from his class at the middle school, left the classroom, then returned armed with two handguns.

"Immediately Mr. Seaman was yelling and running right at him and tackled him to the ground", Ethan said. Seaman's mother Kristi said in a Facebook message her son was in good condition following surgery. Seaman has been released from the hospital, US Rep. Susan Brooks of IN said IN a video posted to her social media accounts Saturday. He was released from hospital Saturday afternoon. The girl was taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in critical condition. Seaman attended the Southern Illinois University and played football there from 2007-2010 under ex-Gopher football head coach Jerry Kill.

An eighth-grader said he counted 16 gunshots inside the middle school during the shooting.

Jeremy Seaman said his brother was a three-sport high school athlete in Mahomet, Illinois.

"I want to let everyone know that I was injured but am doing great", Seaman told the station.

"You just never think it's going to happen in Noblesville, IN", he said.

Janna Lynas of Noblesville, whose son was coached by Seaman in football, said the teacher is a hero "and everyone here feels it".

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. As CNN reports, there are conflicting reports about how many people were injured in the shooting.

Jeremy Seaman, Jason's brother, confirmed to the The Indianapolis Star that his younger brother had been the teacher who was shot.

"Jason Seaman represents the best of Saluki values and character".

On May 18, eight students and two teachers were killed at a rural high school in Texas. More information about the Noblesville school shooting will be provided by the Inquisitr as it becomes available.

Parents comfort each other as they wait outside Noblesville West Middle School after a shooting at the school on May 25, 2018 in Noblesville, Indiana.

"We're all proud of you Jason and are praying for you and those impacted and recovering from injuries", Pence said in his own tweet.
