Suspect in Custody After Shooting at Indiana Middle School

26 May 2018

An Indiana middle school student has been taken into custody after allegedly opening fire on schoolmates Friday, officials said. Seaman and a 13-year-old girl were injured in the attack.

Parents were advised that if they did not receive a phone call from school officials, their children were fine.

Jason Seaman's mother reports he was shot 3 times, including one bullet through abdomen. The student has not yet been identified. Also, one student has a fractured ankle at Riverview Hospital. "We believe he is the involved suspect". Also it was not known if the victim is a student or adult.

"The shooter was apprehended in the classroom or thereabouts", Lt. Bruce Barnes with Noblesville Police said. Jowitt said the situation was resolved quickly and the school has a full-time school resource officer. No additional information about the suspect was made public. The student, who asked to remain anonymous, said the teacher's actions likely prevented tragedy.

Barnes said police are seeking several search warrants in their investigation.

"We all train for this". We need to get it right, we need to make sure we're taking care of the people we need to take care of first right now, and that's the victims in this case.

Niedermeyer called the efforts of the school staff heroic and said, "They did exactly what they were trained to do".

Thoughts and prayers aren't enough to keep our students and educators safe. "We're so grateful for the support we've had".

A student asked for permission to leave the classroom and "he returned armed with two handguns", Jowitt said at an afternoon news conference.

"We've had these shootings around the country", Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said. Is out of surgery and in good condition. "And I had to calm her down and what's going on".

While it seems as though school shootings are happening more and more, it's factually true. She phoned to tell her father she was alright and recalled the horrifying incident.

The reaction contrasted with the response to a February shooting at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. I want to let everyone know that I was injured but am doing great. Police are investigating a threat at Noblesville High School but said it is just a threat.
