A shooter burst into a seventh grade science classroom at Noblesville High School in Indiana Friday morning.
The shooter opened fire, but was quickly apprehended thanks to the brave actions of a teacher. According to witness reports, the teacher of the classroom knocked the gun out of the gunman’s hand and tackled him to the ground.
According to local FOX59, a firsthand witness, a seventh grade student, told the news station that the teacher struck the gun out of the student’s hand, potentially saving many other children. The student didn’t say whether the teacher was injured.
According to the witness;
“I literally just spoke with a seventh grader who was in the room where this happened. Her mom came to pick her up this morning. She confirmed what I heard from another person who lives nearby that this was in a science classroom and that a science teacher may have been the one to literally tackle this kid and swat the gun away from him.
That is a firsthand account… She described him as a student, and that he shot at someone in the room, and one student was injured. And that this science teacher bravely swatted that gun away from the gunman’s hands, saving everyone else in that room.”
Police announced Friday that one student and one teacher were injured in the shooting.
