Shooter opens fire in the cafeteria of a high school, but a brave math instructor takes him out right away

This instructor, aged 40, did the unthinkable before this catastrophe could occur.

A shy math instructor named Angela McQueen managed the shooter when he began the fire at the lunchtime of the kids. She deserves a thumbs up from us!

The number of shootings in schools across the United States is declining. The bulk of them result in honourable students and teachers being hurt or killed, and that is beyond awful.

The shootings cast a gloomy shadow on educational institutions, which should still be safe havens for students.

In light of this, many parents worry for their children’s safety while they are at school rather than feeling content.

Given how easy it is to get a firearm in the country, these incidents are typically easy to describe. Furthermore, the debate is still ongoing as a larger portion of the public calls for the passage of tighter gun control laws.

There is usually someone who is brave enough to fight against the gunman among the possible victims and those connected to the shootings. The death toll from gunshots is fewer than it may have been as a direct result of these people.

In a recent accident at Mattoon High School in Illinois, teacher Angela McQueen was one brave person who made sure students wouldn’t suffer injuries. She has been serving as a temporary P.E. instructor at the school for a while and is regarded as a modest person and a fantastic teacher.

When Angela looks back on that day, she recalls that the first thing that crossed her mind after seeing the teenager pick up the gun was, “You won’t do this to my children.”

Angela didn’t hold back even much as the youngster started firing guns before attempting to take him out.

In a video released by the Illinois Education Association, Angela claimed, “I leapt into action because I looked over and I saw a student pull a gun out and he was aiming it at students to his right.”

“I lunged at the gun and raised it as quickly as I could because I didn’t want him to hit the pupils,” the teacher recalls.

“I lunged at the gun and raised it as quickly as I could because I didn’t want him to hit the pupils,” the teacher recalls.

While still trying to use the gun, the shooter fired two or three shots into the roof while being restrained by Angela. Another teacher rushed to the cafeteria after hearing a shooting, and soon it was filled with police who took the child hostage.

One 16-year-old student was shot during the incident, according to Bridget Shanahan, a spokesman for the Illinois Education Association, but he quickly recovered and was released from the hospital.

The shooter, whose identity was withheld due to the fact that he is a minor, was charged with one count of aggravated violence with a firearm.

On September 20, 2017, Angela’s quick thinking prevented more serious catastrophe from happening.

The incident “might have been very different if the instructor had not reacted as promptly as she did,” according to Mattoon police Chief Jeff Branson.

Angela made sure everyone was safe while the gunman was in the police’s care.
