  • Police in Noblesville about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis say a student suspect is now in custody

Noblesville police chief Kevin Jowitt said at a news conference that the shooter, a male student, asked to be excused from class and returned with a pair of handguns, opening fire as he re-entered the room. A seventh grade male student is in custody.

One person is injured, receptionist Jackie Chatteron said.

The shooter was not injured, police said. It didn't say whether anyone had been shot or provide any other details.

"You see it on the news, you just don't think about it happening in your backyard", Vedder said.

At least three people were taken to area hospitals. The adult patient was transported to IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, according to an IU Health spokesman.

The shooting in IN comes exactly one week after a Texas teenager gunned down nine student and a teacher in a bloody rampage at Santa Fe High School.

Parents can pick up high school and the West middle school students when the threat is cleared, Noblesville Schools said in the email.

Noblesville, which is about 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis, is home to about 50,000 people.

FOX 59 shared the following email a student sent to his parents while he was on lockdown at Noblesville West Middle School.




An Arizona man says his brother, an IN teacher, has undergone surgery after being shot three times when he intervened IN a school shooting at his middle school.

"To everyone in the Noblesville community - you are on our hearts and in our prayers", Pence wrote. We have confidence in Noblesville Schools Superintendent Dr. Beth Niedermeyer and her team, law enforcement, and first responders.

On May 18, Santa Fe High School in Texas experienced a fatal shooting spree that left ten dead at the hands of 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis. He was taken into custody.

Jeremie Lovall said his daughter, a seventh-grader, was in Seaman's classroom when the shooting started.

The Noblesville Fire Department also confirmed that there was an active shooter at Noblesville West Middle School, writing on Twitter, "NFD and NPD are on scene of an active shooter at Noblesville West Middle School".

Authorities also acknowledged that a "secondary threat" was made at the Noblesville high school.

"All this says to me is insanity has hit IN", one man, whose wife's grandson attends school IN the district, told RTV.

Authorities were working to secure the high school Friday.

A hectic scene erupted outside of the middle school as parents frantically searched for their children and school officials worked to load students into buses.
