Teacher who stopped shooting: 'I had to save students'

He told ABC News that Seaman threw a basketball at the shooter and ran toward the bullets as screaming students sought cover behind a table.

A 13-year-old student, Ella Whistler, was also shot during the attack and was in critical but stable condition as of Saturday, her family said.

"Her courage and strength at such a young age is nothing short of remarkable, and we should all continue to keep her in our minds as she continues to recover", Seaman said.

The school district's superintendent says Ella is making progress in her recovery while hospitalized in Indianapolis. After the photographer asked her again, Rousey said she would make it happen for Seaman if he wanted that. The 29-year-old science teacher, a former college football player, was shot but not seriously injured.

We saw that in our first five-six overs, and for the large part of the game we were doing okay. Watson, who only scored his first run off the 11th delivery, hit 11 fours and eight sixes.


According to MSN, Seaman's brother, Jeremy, wouldn't have expected anything less. He says he acted because he cares deeply about his students. "So that's why I did what I did that day". However, he was released on Saturday and his family said he's recovering at home.

Seaman spoke for just a few minutes.

"He wore a white T-shirt emblazoned with the message: "#NOBStrong. "You're the reason I teach", he said.

Ethan Stonebraker, a student witness, said the shooter was acting suspiciously when he walked into the classroom while the class was taking a test Friday.

Police said they arrested the shooter and said the "situation resolved fairly quickly", but did not confirm the accounts of Seaman's reaction or details about how they arrested the shooter.

Authorities have not release the name of the suspect.

Fortunately, Twitter users are keeping Jason Seaman in mind-as an example of the kind of courage, honor, and action in an era of inaction that we should all collectively strive toward. He put his own life in danger for his students. The school's principal and district superintendent will also be on hand. "But he is only one of the heroes I saw on this day", Shaw said.

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of IN, also credited the teacher's "courageous action" for saving lives during the shooting at the suburban Indianapolis school.
