Authorities did not identify the victims and did not provide their conditions, but multiple students identified the teacher as Jason Seaman.
"Mr. Seaman started running at him, he's a teacher, a science teacher- he tackled him to the ground, we were all hiding in the back of a classroom behind some desks, then he was yelling to call 911 to get out of the building as fast as we could, so we ran down the stairs and just ran down here, we ran down the sidewalk into Prairie Crossing", the student said.
