High School Coach Stops Shooter, Embraces Him

Back in May, a high school football coach in Oregon stopped a shooting by disarming the kid with a gun and embracing him.

The security footage is just now going viral, and for good reason, because once everyone was safe, he just HUGGED the kid and sat with him until police got there.

It turned out the kid has some mental health issues and was having a breakdown and was planning to commit suicide.

The hero and coach’s name is Keanon Lowe, and he describes the moment he quickly analyzed the situation and realized he needed to react with love instead of lashing out in fear and anger.

In the months following the incident until now, the student pleaded guilty to felony possession of a firearm in a public building and misdemeanor possession of a loaded firearm in public.

He was also sentenced to three years of probation and now has access to the mental health services he needs in the future.
