Jeremy Seaman, Jason's brother, confirmed to the The Indianapolis Star that his younger brother had been the teacher who was shot. "We have no reason to believe that there is any kind of threat connected to this anywhere else", Noblesville Chief of of Police Kevin Jowitt said in press conference.

"And that this science teacher bravely swatted that gun away from the gunman's hands, saving everyone else in that room". Stonebraker added, "if it weren't for him, more of us would have been injured for sure". "You could always trust him to do the right thing".

The attack comes a week after an attack at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers.

He was transported following the shooting Friday (May 25) morning at Noblesville West Middle School. Doug Carter, Indiana State Police superintendent, declined to elaborate on Seaman's role.
