A heroic science teacher tackled a student gunman to the ground after he opened fire in an Indiana classroom on Friday morning, leaving two people critically injured.
According to students who survived, the gunman burst into a classroom at Noblesville West Middle School at 9.06am and opened fire, critically injuring a 13-year-old girl and one teacher.
It is not clear if the injured teacher is the same one who brought him to the ground and, as witnesses described it, ‘swatted’ the gun out of his hand.
The shooter was arrested shortly afterwards and remains in police custody.
The injured teacher and teenager are in a critical condition at a local hospital.
As shots rang out in the school, terrified students hid in closets and sent petrified emails to their parents telling them that they loved them.
Once the suspect was brought into custody, the children were evacuated onto school buses to be taken to the Noblesville West High School where they will be reunited with parents.
There are 1300 students in the school, according to local media, and around 70 teachers.
