Teacher subdues school shooter

MOSES LAKE, Wash., — In 1996, gunshots rang through Frontier Middle School. A teacher and two students were gunned down while a 14-year-old went on a rampage. Upon hearing the shots, then gym teacher Jon Lane entered the classroom where he found the gunman demanding a hostage. Lane volunteered to be the hostage in an effort to prevent more lives from being taken. As the gunman aimed his rifle at the gym teacher, Lane disarmed the shooter and wrestled him to the ground. He subdued him until police arrived. Lane is now the mayor of Moses Lake.
