Seriously, Keanon is a HERO!

Newly released surveillance footage from the Parkrose High School gun scare in May shows Keanon Lowe, a security guard and coach at the Portland, Oregon, school, disarming, embracing and comforting the distraught student who brought a loaded shotgun into a classroom.

Lowe, a football and track and field coach at Parkrose, is out of frame slowly approaching but eventually hugging then-18-year-old gunman Angel Granados-Diaz.

The 27-year-old had just seconds to react.

Lowe said: "The door opens, I'm within arm's length of the door, about 3 feet away from the door, and there's a kid with a gun, a shotgun".

Keanon Lowe, who tackled a gunman at an OR high school in May 2019, poses with the Portland Trail Blazers mascot. Lowe added, "I looked at the gun and I realized it was a real gun and then my instincts just took over". "I lunged for the gun, put two hands on the gun".

No one was hurt in the incident, USA Today reported at the time, and KOIN 6 reported that officials said Granados-Diaz never pointed the gun at anyone other than himself.

"I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him".

FIFA World Cup: A tournament for everyone
There are just too many teams, too many leagues, and too many competitions to keep up-to-date with all the major events and news. You can catch the best players, you can catch those players notorious for on field antics and also off field antics.

"I felt compassion for him; a lot of times, especially when you're young, you don't realize what you're doing until it's over", Lowe said.

Lowe, who was a standout wide receiver for the University of OR between 2010 and 2014, told reporters at the time that they had an "emotional" moment together, according to CNN affiliate KATU.

Granados-Diaz had been suffering from a mental health breakdown at the time and was intending on killing himself, according to the Oregonian.

But on October 10, 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, reported KOIN.

While Lowe's actions had been extensively reported, the video provided visual documentation of how his quick thinking and compassion potentially prevented a tragedy.

"So insanely powerful", wrote local journalist Taylor Graham. Lowe disarmed a student who brought a weapon to school before a single person was shot back in May.

"I have not been this moved in a very long time", Portland Trail Blazers courtside reporter Brooke Olzendam added.
