Teacher credited with stopping shooter at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana

Students at Indiana’s Noblesville West Middle School are hailing a science teacher as a hero for his actions Friday, when a boy opened fire on classmates at the school. >> Read more trending news A teacher, identified by The Indianapolis Star as Jason Seaman, sprung into action after a student asked to use the bathroom Friday morning and returned to the classroom with a pair of handguns, police said. Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker told The Associated Press that students were taking a test when the unidentified student walked into the classroom and opened fire. >> Noblesville, Indiana middle school shooting: 2 injured, student in custody “Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground,” seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker told The Associated Press. “If it weren’t for him, more of us would have been injured for sure.” The Star reported that Seaman was shot three times and underwent surgery Friday. An unidentified student was also injured, according to police. He released a written statement to media Friday evening:  “First of all, thank you to the first responders from Noblesville and Fishers for their immediate action and care. I want to let everyone know that I was injured (but) am doing great. To all the students, you are all wonderful and I thank you for your support. You are the reason I teach.” Jason Seaman’s brother, Jeremy Seaman, told the Star that he was not surprised by reports of his brother’s actions. “He’s not really ever been the person to run away,” Jeremy Seaman told the Star. “When the safety of the kids is at hand, it’s not surprising to me that he was going to do what he had to do.” Jason Seaman has been a teacher in Noblesville for four years, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has also served as head football coach for seventh-graders for two years. Jeremy Seaman  told the Star that his brother is married with two young children. Jason Seaman played college football for Southern Illinois from 2007 to 2010, according to ESPN. The team's head coach, Nick Hill, said in a statement Friday that Jason Seaman 'was a great teammate (and) one of the team's hardest workers.'  'You could always trust him to do the right thing,' he said. Jason Seaman continued to recover Friday. Police continue to investigate the shooting.

I want to let everyone know that I was injured (but) am doing great. To all the students, you are all wonderful and I thank you for your support. You are the reason I teach.” Update 2:50 p.m. EDT: The Indianapolis Star identified the teacher injured in Friday’s shooting at Noblesville West Middle School as Jason Seaman. The newspaper reported he was shot three times while knocking the gun out of the hands of a middle school student who fired shots at the school. Jason Seaman’s brother, Jeremy Seaman, told the newspaper that he was not surprised by reports of his brother’s actions. Students have told several news stations that his quick thinking saved an untold number of lives. “He’s not really ever been the person to run away,” Jeremy Seaman told the Star. “When the safety of the kids is at hand, it’s not surprising to me that he was going to do what he had to do.” Jeremy Seaman told the Star that his brother was undergoing surgery Friday. Update 2:39 p.m. EDT: Noblesville police Chief Kevin Jowitt said at a news conference Friday afternoon that the student who opened fire at Noblesville West Middle School earlier in the day asked to be excused from class before returning with a pair of handguns.  Jowitt said the student was quickly taken into custody.

The seventh-grade girl, who was not identified, told the news station that “this science teacher bravely swatted that gun away from the gunman’s hands, saving everyone else in that room.” Another seventh-grader, Ethan Stonebraker, told The Associated Press that the shooter walked into his science class while students were taking a test. 'Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground,' Stonebraker said. 'If it weren't for him, more of us would have been injured for sure.' It was not immediately clear if the teacher was the same one injured in Friday morning’s shooting.  Police said a juvenile and an adult teacher were injured when an unidentified male student opened fire at the school around 9 a.m. Another student also suffered an ankle fracture, according to officials with Riverview Health. Update 11:43 a.m. EDT: Vice President Mike Pence thanked law enforcement officers and shared condolences after a shooting at a middle school in his home state, Indiana. “Karen and I are praying for the victims of the terrible shooting in Indiana,” Pence wrote on Twitter Friday, referring to his wife, Karen Pence. “To everyone in the Noblesville community -- you are in our hearts and in our prayers.” Update 11:28 a.m. EDT: Noblesville police Chief Kevin Jowitt confirmed that a teacher and a juvenile were injured Friday morning in a shooting at Noblesville West Middle School. Police did not identify either of the victims. They were taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital and Riley Hospital, respectively, Jowitt said.

The 'Buresh Bottom Line': Always be prepared!..... City of Jacksonville Preparedness Guide... Georgia Hurricane Guide.   Low pressure over the Yucatan Peninsula will slowly move northward over the Gulf of Mexico Friday into Saturday possibly acquiring subtropical or even full tropical characteristics in the process.  It appears the most probable 'landfall' is from the Fl. Panhandle to New Orleans.  Given my expected track & intensity (relatively weak)... the impacts for Jacksonville / NE Fl. / SE Ga. are as follows - in order of magnitude: * heavy rain - rainfall will average 2-4' Sat. - Mon. but locally more causing some localized flooding * rip currents at area beaches.  A broad & persistent onshore flow out of the southeast will cause a moderate to high rip current risk through the holiday weekend.  Never swim & surf alone & always as close to lifeguard as possible. * gusty winds of 15-20 mph with local much higher brief gusts - 40-50 mph - with any strong rain bands or associated with any stronger thunderstorms * isolated waterspouts or tornadoes - higher tornado threat to the west If traveling west along the I-10 corridor through the Panhandle to Mobile, Biloxi & New Orleans, flooding rain will be the primary threat along with rip currents at beach locations... gusty winds... & a few tornadoes. May tropical cyclones have occurred 4 times in the last 5 years:  2016 (1 - Bonnie)... 2015 (1 - Ana)... 2012 (2 - Alberto & Beryl).   The list of names repeats every 6 years, & we could have another early 'Alberto' this year. On an interesting historical note - only 4 tropical or subtropical cyclones have developed over the Gulf of Mexico since 1851 during the month of May.  Only 1 of those storms has been during the satellite era of the early 1960s - on May 22nd, 1976. The area to watch is the West & Northwest Caribbean as a poorly organized area of low pressure sits over the Eastern Yucatan Peninsula.  The system will drift to the north with a surface low gradually developing over the Central &/or Eastern Gulf of Mexico. A combination of strong shear out of the west... dry air over the Western Gulf.... & marginal sea surface temps. should all add up to a system that struggles & generally remains weak & heavily weighted on the east side which is typical of early season tropical disturbances.  Shear from the west & southwest will remain significant keeping the heavier rain & gusty winds over the eastern circulation.  A possible landfall will be between New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle sometime over the weekend. The screaming message with this system will be heavy rain potential from Jacksonville & especially west along the I-10 corridor all the way to New Orleans.  The more west you go from Jacksonville, the stronger the impacts: gusty winds, rough seas/surf, rip currents & heavy rain. Water vapor imagery shows a lot of dry air over the Western Gulf of Mexico - another obstacle for any strong development as the disturbance moves north over the Gulf....

Trump Administration searches for way forward on North Korea

A day after President Donald Trump scrapped a planned June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un, the President, White House, and State Department made clear that U.S. officials continue to be open to further contacts with their North Korean counterparts, seeing if there is a way to get talks back on track to rein in the nuclear weapons program of the Pyongyang regime.

“We always knew there would be twists and turns leading up to this meeting on June 12,” said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.

“We never expected it to be easy, so none of this comes as a surprise [More]
