Kaleb Eulls saved the lives of fellow students from a teenager with a gun on Tuesday.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – High school football star Kaleb Eulls saved the lives of fellow students Tuesday while riding on a school bus. As reported by BulldogBlitz.com, the Mississippi student wrestled a gun away from an armed 14 year-old female student who threatened to fire the weapon.
Eulls is quoted in the report as stating of the incident, “I was just scared for the younger kids and my family that was on the bus… I was just thinking things out step-by-step as quickly as I could. After we got to the school and watched the tape I just sat there thinking ‘what in the world did I just do?’ I just thought about what if this would have happened or if this would have happened? It was just crazy.”
Yazoo County Sheriff Tommy Vaughn is further quoted as stating in The Clarion Ledger, “If it hadn’t been for this star football player, things could have been different. He didn’t go overboard, but he did exactly what it took to get her on the ground… He made the statement to one of my deputies that if she was going to shoot anyone he would rather she shoot him. Watching him do that and him doing such a heroic act and not even caring about his own safety, that’s something you don’t see every day.”
