Jason Seaman has been discharged from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis following the shooting. Jason Seaman put himself in harm's way to protect his students and he doesn't regret his actions, even though he, too, was hit by gunfire. "Her courage and strenghth at such a young age is nothing short of remarkable".

Seaman, a Mahomet, Illinois native spoke for just a few minutes and declined to answer questions from reporters.

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of IN, also credited the teacher's "courageous action" for saving lives during the shooting at the suburban Indianapolis school.
