Video surfaces of former 49ers assistant coach disarming gunman in high school

Video shows high school coach disarming and hugging suicidal student

Newly released surveillance footage shows the moment an OR high school coach disarmed a shotgun-wielding student - and embraced him with a hug, compassion, and empathy.

NBC reported that Angel Granados-Diaz, 19, was seen on CCTV walking into a building of Parkrose High School in Portland with a shotgun hidden under his jacket earlier this year.

Lowe, a former Oregon Ducks football player, told the station that when the student entered the classroom with the weapon, he was close enough that he lunged for the gun and grabbed it with both hands.

Then, in an extraordinary scene, Lowe embraces Granados-Diaz with a bear hug.

Surveillance footage has been released showing the moment a high school coach in OR prevented a possible school shooting and suicide attempt five months ago.

Lowe dealt with Granados-Diaz until police arrived to the Northeast Portland school.

Granados-Diaz has remained in custody since he was arrested in May.

Police said at the time a student entered a classroom at Parkrose High School wearing a black trench coat while carrying a loaded shotgun.

"I saw the look in his face, look in his eyes, looked at the gun, realized it was a real gun and then my instincts just took over", Lowe also said.

According to the Multnomah County district attorney, the young man had been suffering from mental health issues for some time before the incident. Obviously, he broke down and I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him.

The heart-wrenching video of a coach disarming a student with a shotgun outside a classroom has been doing the rounds on the internet. He went into a classroom with the intent of killing himself, authorities said, not to kill other students.

Prosecutors and Granados-Diaz's lawyer insisted the incident was not a potential school shooting.

The coach said he told Dias he was there for him and that his life was worth saving.

Granados-Diaz initially pleaded not guilty.

Reports say that a judge handed down a 36-month probation sentence under a pretrial agreement for Angel Granados-Diaz. He then worked under Chip Kelly as an offensive analyst in Philadelphia in 2015 before working under Kelly with the 49ers in 2016.
