As it turns out, Jason Seaman is just the man you need when you want someone tackled: he formerly played college football, as a defensive end for Southern Illinois University's Salukis, and is also a football coach at Noblesville.

Seaman's aunt, Brenda Hubly-Sushka, told CNN no one in the family was surprised by his actions.

The suspect had excused himself from class at Noblesville West Middle School and came back armed with the pistols and opened fire. The unidentified girl was in critical condition at an Indianapolis hospital, police said.

They are police officers who are specially trained to work at schools.

Vice President Mike Pence, who previously served as governor of IN, offered prayers for the victims.
