NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - The Latest on a shooting at an Indiana middle school:
President Donald Trump is praising the suburban Indianapolis science teacher who stopped a shooting inside his classroom.
Trump sent a tweet Saturday saying: "Thanks to very brave Teacher & Hero Jason Seaman of Noblesville, Indiana, for his heroic act in saving so many precious young lives. His quick and automatic action is being talked about all over the world!"
One of Seaman's seventh-grade students at Noblesville West Middle School says another student entered the classroom with a gun and started shooting Friday morning. He says his 29-year-old teacher immediately ran at the student, "swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground."
Seaman was shot but is in good condition at a local hospital. A student, Ella Whistler, was also shot. Her family says she's hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
