A male student opened fire at a middle school in suburban Indianapolis on Friday morning, the local authorities said, injuring another student and a teacher.

Police said the suspected shooter was brought into custody shortly after the shooting took place around 9 a.m.

A student interviewed by WTTV said the shooter entered a science class and the teacher swatted a gun away from the shooter. One teacher and one student were initially reported injured.

Family members confirmed that the teacher is Jason Seaman. He underwent surgery for three gunshot wounds, his mother, Kristi Seaman, wrote in a Facebook post.

The incident occurred a week after a 17-year-old high school student in Santa Fe, Texas, near Houston shot and killed eight classmates and two teachers, the latest in a string of deadly shootings at US schools.

The attack comes a week after an attack at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers.

The suspect in that shooting was identified as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a student at the school.

"You just never think it's going to happen in Noblesville, IN", he said. "It's very sad that we have to go through this in our attractive city", Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said. He rushed into a small room with three other people to hide. Indiana State Police Sergeant John Perrine said the families of the victims have been notified and the students were being taken to Noblesville High School, where parents could pick up their children.

"He's a hero. If he didn't do anything he probably would have continued shooting and a lot more of us would have been injured and possibly killed, so it was just something that not most people would have done but he was really courageous to do it", he said.

Barnes said a number of search warrants had been issued, while another official said the investigation would have to be completed before they could determine if and what charges would be filed. Police are on scene.

Investigators also said they do not know yet if the shooter had any previous problems at school or run-ins with police.

WTHR reports that Nobleville West Middle School is on lockdown following reports of a shooting there Friday morning.

Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker says the class was taking a test at the school when the suspect walked in late, pulled out a gun and started firing. "We have not received any information that this has been anything other than a communicated threat", Jowitt said. "We are told he is in good condition but haven't gotten to see him yet".
