This incident reportedly happened back in May in Portland, but it wasn’t until this Friday that the surveillance video was released by the district attorney’s office. The video shows Keanon Lowe, a football and track and field coach at Parkrose High School, backing out of a classroom with shotgun in hand. He then hands the shotgun to another adult and embraces the student who brought it to school.

ABC News reports:

Lowe was hailed a hero following the incident at the Portland high school.

“This was a best-case scenario,” Portland Police Sergeant Brad Yakots said at the time. “The staff members from all accounts did an excellent job.”

Initial reports said that Lowe wrestled the student to the ground, but the video, which was released by Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office on Friday, shows the emotional moment the two shared.

[The student], now 19, was suffering from a mental health crisis at the time, according to ABC Portland affiliate KATU. He pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm in a public building and one count of unlawful possession of a loaded firearm in public and was sentenced to three years of probation, KATU reported.
