Heroic Noblesville teacher Jason Seaman, school officials address Friday’s shooting

Teacher who tackled gunman speaks out for the first time since getting shot

Molly Miles, a Noblesville High School freshman, told the IndyStar that she remembered Seaman telling the class that he would keep them safe in the event of a shooting.

She said she wasn't surprised to hear that Seaman intervened to save students.

Officials say the 29-year-old former college football player was shot three times Friday as he tackled the shooter inside his classroom at Noblesville West Middle School. Ella was listed in critical condition on Friday.

The baseball game was originally going to be moved from Noblesville, but the IHSAA made a decision to keep it there to honor Jason Seaman, student Ella Whistler, as well as all of the faculty and students at Noblesville West Middle School.

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

Niedermeyer added that she is "so grateful for Jason's quick and courageous actions". Seaman, and a middle school student named Ella, were both hit by bullets after a school shooting on Friday morning.

When asked to elaborate on his praise of the response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait 'til one day we can tell you that story".

"I especially remember that he would throw himself on top of the shooter if he had to", she said.

The attack came a week after a shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers, and months after the high school attack that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida.
