2 injured in shooting at Indiana middle school; gunman arrested

Parent of middle school students amid shooting ‘This happens in high school not here

Both are now in critical condition.

The Indianapolis Star reported the teacher who confronted the suspect is Jason Seaman. The student has not yet been identified. The school's academic year was scheduled to end next Friday. The science teacher then bravely swatted the gun away from the shooter, possibly saving others from getting injured. Police said the student was apprehended in the classroom.

Additionally, a second student was taken to Riverview Health in Noblesville for treatment for a fractured ankle.

She says she was at work Friday morning when her son sent a text message about the shooting, stunning her. "To everyone in the Noblesville community - you are on our hearts and in our prayers". We have confidence in Noblesville Schools Superintendent Dr. Beth Niedermeyer and her team, law enforcement, and first responders.

"Two people have been impacted by this".

An adult was taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

Jowitt said the situation was "resolved extremely quickly", and the student was taken into custody.

The school does not have metal detectors, officials said.

"We all train for this". Detectives are investigating how the student got the guns he had, and police have issued several search warrants.

The victims were taken to a hospital, said the State Police, which did not provide further details on them.

Video from that news station showed scores of parents swarming the high school, trying to reach their children. "We're so grateful for the support we've had".

Adding to the confusion was a threat reported at the high school as middle school students were being evacuated.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, flying back from Europe, said in a statement that he was monitoring the situation.

"He's a hero. If he didn't do anything he probably would have continued shooting and a lot more of us would have been injured and possibly killed, so it was just something that not most people would have done but he was really fearless to do it", he said.

In a statement obtained by WTTV, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said the "epidemic of violence sweeping across American schools has now come to Indiana".

"Staff were prepared; they knew what they were doing, and I couldn't be more proud".

"I literally just spoke with a seventh-grader who was in the room where this happened". "And I had to calm her down and what's going on".

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated the school is northwest of Indianapolis.

News 8's Brenna Donnelly also spoke with another parent, Somorah Landis. "She was crying and so frantic". "This happens in high school, not here". The last day of this school year is in one week, June 1.

A student who was in the classroom at the time of the incident said the shooter fired 4-6 shots, not at anybody in particular.
