Student in Custody After Allegedly Opening Fire at Indiana Middle School

"The situation resolved itself quickly and he was taken into custody".

One person is injured, receptionist Jackie Chatteron said Friday.

The shooter was not injured, police said.

Mayor John Distler said the community is just beginning to cope with what happened. "Here we go again, and it's just really, really, really unfortunate", Jowitt said.

The student victim was taken to Riley Hospital for Children, and the teacher was brought to IU Health Methodist Hospital, Indiana University Health spokeswoman Danielle Sirilla told the Associated Press.

CBS4 in Indianapolis reported that, according to a student who witnessed the incident, an unarmed male science teacher subdued the shooter.

Noblesville police also responded to a report of a threat at the nearby high school, but Noblesville police say they don't believe it to be anything other than a "communicated threat".

Chad Lancaster, who has an eighth-grade daughter and sixth-grade son at the middle school, said he heard about the shooting from his ex-wife in a phone call.

The school is located some 30 miles north of Indianapolis, at 19900 Hague Road.

Former SIU defensive lineman Jason Seaman is being hailed as a hero after confronting a male student that pulled a gun out and started shooting as his science class was taking a test Friday morning. "To everyone in the Noblesville community - you are on our hearts and in our prayers". The call came in at 9:06 a.m. for an active shooter.

In Santa Fe, Texas, 10 students were killed last week when a 17-year-old used his father's shotgun and.38-caliber revolver to shoot up an art class. The gunman was taken into custody Friday morning.

"He said, 'I'm OK, please come get me.' That was probably 20 minutes after it happened", Morris said. We have multiple officers and a command post established at Noblesville High School and are diligently ensuring the safety of students and staff there.

There have been 23 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed so far this year - an average of more than one shooting a week.

"Today an unfortunate shooting at a school has occurred in Indiana".

My team and I are in touch with the Governor's office, Lt. Governor's office & local authorities regarding the reported shooting at Noblesville West Middle School & we have offered our full and complete support.

Footage of the students begin loaded onto buses and driven away from the scene of the tragic shooting was revealed in early news reports of the shooting.
