On Friday, former Oregon receiver Keanon Lowe tackled a gunman at Parkrose High School in Portland. He is a football coach and track and field coach at the school.
The gunman is reportedly a student at the school, and as of now his motives remain unclear, although some are saying he intended to commit suicide.
Via TMZ Sports:
Former Oregon Ducks stud Keanon Lowe is being touted as a hero today … Portland high school students are praising the ex-WR for stopping a gunman who was near campus Friday.
Lowe — one of Marcus Mariota‘s favorite targets back at Oregon — reportedly tackled a man with a gun near the tennis courts at Parkrose High School in Northeast Portland.
Unclear what the man’s intentions were — cops have yet to say his motive — but Oregon Live reports, “a parent said students reported that the suspect, a fellow student, had brought a gun to the school with the intention of committing suicide.”
Lowe is definitely a hero and stopped a tragedy, even if the gunman was only going to kill himself. Hopefully the gunman gets some help and makes the most of his second chance.
