The student injured in last week’s shooting at Noblesville West Middle School is now in stable condition, according to a statement from her family.
Ella Whistler, 13, is being treated for gunshot wounds at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
Police say a male student at Noblesville West opened fire in a classroom Friday morning, injuring Whislter and science teacher Jason Seaman.
Seaman is credited with stopping the alleged shooter by tackling him and knocking the gun out of his hand. Seaman sustained three gunshot wounds but was not seriously injured.
A crowd-funding campaign set up for Whistler and her family has raised close to $70,000 as of Thursday morning. A crowd-funding campaign for Seaman has raised more than $99,000.
The Noblesville Schools Education Foundation has set up a fund to “support the needs of the victims.”
T-shirts with the message “#NOBStrong” are being sold, with proceeds going to both Whistler and Seaman. The Indianapolis Colts wore the shirts to practice on Wednesday.
The suspect is in police custody. Hamilton County prosecutors are not immediately releasing information about him, as state laws prevent releasing information about a minor accused of a crime.
