Police said a student, Ella Whistler, and teacher, Jason Seaman, were injured in the shooting and the suspect, a student, was taken into custody.

She said she wasn't surprised to hear that Seaman intervened to save students. A police officer assigned to the school was on duty and in the building, they said.

"There a male student at Noblesville West Middle School who has been detained", said Kevin Jowitt, Noblesville Chief of Police.

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.

"Then he started screaming to call 911 and get out and we realized he had gotten him to the ground and the gun was out of his hands", another student said.

Seaman was hit three times - once through the hip, once through the forearm and once through the abdomen, according to a Facebook post by his mother, Kristin Hubly Seaman. He was released from hospital Saturday afternoon.

Jaylen Brown scored 27 for Boston, who led by five at the end of a spirited first quarter but finally had no answer for James. He finished with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, that included two fantastic dagger 3-pointers in the final minutes.

Fire and police officials did not detail injuries, but WISH TV in Indianapolis reported that a 13-year-old student and an adult were in critical condition. Jeremy Seaman said his brother was a defensive end for Southern Illinois University's football team and had never been a person to run away.

Jowitt said that the school employs a full-time school resource officer, but does not know if he was involved in the shooting.

"I want to let everyone know that I was injured but am doing great", the statement said.

SIU football coach Nick Hill, a quarterback that played his senior year with Seaman, remembered him as a dedicated player.

She says: "I got a "Mom, I'm scared" text message and other than that, it was 'come get me at the high school'".

"Just his core values of hard work and being a good teammate, just as a coach you're looking for more Jason Seamans to join your team for sure", he said.

‘Quiet revolution’: Ireland votes to legalize abortion
Ireland's government will be posed to consider legislation that would permit abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Ireland voted "Yes" on Saturday to amend its constitution and enable legislation allowing women to have an abortion.

Hundreds gathered at Federal Hill Commons Park on Saturday evening to show support for students, teachers and families affected by the shooting at Noblesville West Middle School.

Pence also wrote on Twitter: "Indiana school teacher Jason Seaman is an American [and a Hoosier!] Hero".

Jeremy Seaman, Jason's brother, confirmed to the The Indianapolis Star that his younger brother had been the teacher who was shot.

Friday's school shooting follows the deadly attack that killed 10 at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

Lindsey Hall, who was Seaman's middle-school principal before becoming superintendent of the Mahomet-Seymour school district, said it was unsurprising that Seaman "rose to the occasion" Friday morning.
