Yet another shooting took place at Noblesville West Middle School in northern Indianapolis on May 25, 2018. Just before the final bell rang, a student entered his science class with a handgun and opened fire.

Meanwhile, the loudspeaker clicked on and alerted to a school lockdown. The students from the science class hid in the closets as their teacher, Mr. Jason Seaman, did the unthinkable.

Jason, who is also the school’s head football coach, started running at the shooter, lunging at him with full force. “… he tackled him to the ground, we were all hiding in the back of a classroom behind some desks,” one of the seventh-graders told WXIN. “Then (Seaman) was yelling to call 911 to get out of the building as fast as we could.”

The only thing on Jason’s mind was saving the lives of his students — and he was shot three times in the process.

Jason underwent surgery for his gunshot wounds and miraculously recovered. His mother Kristi hadn’t gotten to see him yet when she posted about her son’s actions on Facebook.

But in the video below, the heroic teacher speaks publicly for the first time since getting shot.
