Science teacher who tackled Noblesville West Middle School shooter identified

Noblesville police chief Kevin Jowitt said at a news conference that the shooter, a male student, asked to be excused from class and returned with a pair of handguns, opening fire as he re-entered the room.

The unnamed educator tackled the shooter to the ground and swatted the gun away from him, a student who said she was in the classroom told WXIN-TV.

It wasn't Seaman's first tackle.

Jeremy Seaman said he wasn't surprised his brother, a former defensive end for Southern Illinois University, put his own safety at risk on behalf of his students.

The teacher and one student were shot and hospitalized, police said.

Seaman was struck three times and underwent surgery, according to a Facebook post by his mother.

Jowitt says the student was quickly taken into custody and didn't confirm accounts that the teacher tackled the shooter after he fired four to six shots. More information about the Noblesville school shooting will be provided by the Inquisitr as it becomes available.

A student was also wounded in the shooting. "I went into this little room in the back with three other people", he said calmly standing between his parents as they picked him up.

Police said that Noblesville West Middle School has been cleared. "My daughter called her while it was happening from underneath the desk and it sounded like it was coming from another hallway".

Maria Roney, whose son is an eighth-grade student, said that even with seeing school shootings across the country, she never expected it to happen at her son's school. Stonebraker adds, "if it weren't for him, more of us would have been injured for sure". "When it comes down to it, we come to the realization of 'What do we do?'" Barnes said, speaking of the ongoing investigation. According to Fox 59, Seaman coaches football at the school. Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, was behind the deadly shooting that took place at Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday morning, May 18.
