NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Students are streaming back into a suburban Indianapolis middle school five days after officials say a male student shot and wounded a 13-year-old classmate and a teacher who's credited with disarming the assailant.

Scores of cars and more than a dozen buses dropped children off Wednesday morning at Noblesville West Middle School, where classes were resuming two hours later than usual.

At least three police vehicles are positioned on the school's campus. Some school buses appeared to have only a few students on board.

Science teacher Jason Seaman has been hailed for tackling the shooter after he seriously wounded 13-year-old Ella Whistler on Friday morning. She remains hospitalized in Indianapolis. School officials say her condition is improving.
