(NOBLESVILLE) - A science teacher who was shot while tackling an armed student at a suburban Indianapolis middle school is scheduled to speak about the incident.

The school district says Jason Seaman will discuss the shooting during a press conference on Monday morning. The school's principal and district superintendent will also be on hand.
