Hero teacher: Tackling, disarming gunman "only acceptable actions"

Ronda Rousey Says She'd be Willing to Have Wounded Indiana Teacher Jason Seaman Walk Her to the Ring

Seaman also thanked Noblesville High School senior Jackson Ramsey, who started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Seaman's medical bills. The school district's superintendent says Ella is making progress in her recovery while hospitalized in Indianapolis.

- TMZ wrote that a photographer caught up with WWE Superstar and former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and asked her about Jason Seaman, a teacher who reportedly took down an unnamed shooter at the Noblesville West Middle School in IN on Friday (May 25). The teen is in critical but stable condition and was recovering, school officials said.

Seaman, who has been a teacher and football coach at the middle school for four years, immediately ran at the gunman and tackled him to the ground, according to seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker, who was in the classroom at the time.

The Indiana teacher who stopped a school shooting says his swift decisions were the "only acceptable action" to save his students.

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

"I can't say enough of how proud of Ella I am", Seaman said today.

M-S grad Jason Seaman, a seventh grade science teacher at Noblesville West Middle School in Noblesville, Ind., speaks to the media during a press conference Monday, May 28, 2018. A local high school student launched the effort.

"I can't really fathom how someone I have not personally met would do such an act of kindness and how the Noblesville community has been so generous in their response to it", Seaman said.

Swan said the school would emerge from Friday's shooting stronger than before.

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.

"We're so grateful for Jason's quick and fearless actions", Noblesville Schools Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer said during the news conference. "He pretty much protected all of us and it's something that you couldn't ask more of".

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.
