Twenty-two children ages 5 to 18 were saved by Kaleb Eulls, the quarterback of the Yazoo County High School football team in Mississippi, when he tackled a 14-year-old girl who brought a .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun on board.
"I'm just extremely happy this young man took the bull by the horns and stopped a potentially deadly situation," said Yazoo County Sheriff Thomas Vaughan. He said the girl paced the bus aisle, shouting and pointing gun at students.
She threatened to shoot children she accused of teasing her. Eulls, who made a verbal commitment to play for Mississippi State, distracted her so that other students could evacuate the bus, then suddenly rushed her to the floor and took away the gun.
