First Year Teacher Hero After Tackling Student Gunman in Normal


A teacher from Lincoln who subdued a teenage gunman and averted tragedy inside Normal Community High School last week says the healing process is getting underway.

 

Derrick Schonauer says he and students shared a group hug as they returned to classes Monday for the first time since the harrowing incident.

 

Schonauer isn’t talking much about his actions last Friday, but other witnesses say the first-year health teacher tackled the 14-year-old boy after he fired shots into a classroom ceiling.

 

The unidentified teenager is facing 16 felony counts for the incident, in which he brought not only three guns, but also a hatchet, two knives and a flammable liquid into the school.
