VIDEO: Teacher Saves Students from Gunman

Stephen Eldridge, TeachHUB

Teacher Ryan Heber is being credited with saving the lives of as many as 28 students after he stepped between his class and a shotgun.

A 16-year-old student entered Heber's classroom armed with a shotgun, and fired twice, critically wounding a classmate. Heber confronted the assaillant while his students escaped. Campus superviser Kim Fields rushed to the classroom, and together Heber and Fields convinced the gunman to lay down his weapon.
