- 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).
Thanks to very courageous Teacher & Hero Jason Seaman of Noblesville, Indiana, for his heroic act in saving so many precious young lives. "We all should continue to keep her in our minds as she continues to recover". Jason Seaman put himself in harm's way to protect his students and he doesn't regret his actions, even though he, too, was hit by gunfire.
A police officer assigned to the school was on duty and in the building, according to police, but students say it was Seaman, a former college football player, who subdued the attacker. "I deeply care for my students and their well-being, so that is why I did what I did that day", Seaman said. "That is why I did what I did that day", he said.
"He wore a white T-shirt emblazoned with the message: "#NOBStrong. "You're the reason I teach", he said.
A 13-year-old student, Ella Whistler, was also injured during the shooting and is reportedly still recovering from a surgery at the hospital. He was released from hospital Saturday.

The Associated Press does not generally identify victims of sexual assault unless they agree to be named, as Godbold has done. The disgraced Hollywood producer emerged from the back of his black SUV and ignored the questions shouted by reporters.
Seaman spoke for just a few minutes and declined to answer questions from reporters.
Noblesville West Middle School Principal Stacey Swan and superintendent Beth Niedermeyer were also slated to be in attendance. The middle school was scheduled to remain closed Tuesday to provide counseling for students, staff and their families. Before becoming a high school teacher and coach, Seaman played for the Southern Illinois football team.
Authorities have credited Seaman's actions for quickly ending a situation that could have become far worse.
