Lacey, Wash. – A teacher at the North Thurston High School is being credited with stopping an active shooter situation that happened at the school Monday morning.

A radio call came in to the Lacey police from a school resource officer at approximately 7:30 a.m. stating that there was an active shooter situation in progress at the school, according to King 5 News.

Only moments later the resource officer called back to inform the police the shooter was in custody and that no one was hurt during the incident.

Initial reports are crediting a Mr. Olson with stopping the shooter, according to KIRO 7 News.
The teacher reportedly tackled the student, a 15- or 16-year-old boy, after the student allegedly fired multiple shots into the air in a common area of the school, according to police.

“I think it’s heroic. I think it’s guttural. People rise to the occasion when they need to do something. I think, in this case, it probably prevented worse things from happening,” said Commander Chris Ward, Lacey Police.
