It's a video that has gone viral of a moment an Oregon coach disarmed a student who entered a school possessing a firearm.
Keanon Lowe, a former 49ers assistant coach, now serves as the head football coach and security guard at Parkrose High School in Portland, Ore. He's also a hero after preventing a shooting when he embraced a gunman and caused them to surrender his weapon:
Did a little background on Keanon Lowe, learned he used to be an offensive analyst for the 49ers under Chip Kelly in 2016 https://t.co/ZxlD5diVct— Sam Hustis (@SamHustis) October 19, 2019
The gunman walked into one of the buildings at the school with a shotgun hidden under a jacket he was carrying in his arms on May 17.
“I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him," Lowe told reporters. "I told him I was there to save him. I was there for a reason and that this is a life worth living.”
Lowe is also a former standout star wide receiver at the University of Oregon.
“The universe works in amazing ways," Lowe added. "I’m lucky and I’m happy that I was in that classroom for all those kids and I was able to prevent that tragedy."
Nobody was injured in the events.
