In the U.S. there have been so many school shootings as gun related tragedies have rained down on one community after another.

But in Portland, Oregon Keanon Lowe, a high school coach and security guard, courageously and compassionately intervened before an armed student could fire his weapon.

Here is this remarkable story:

(Story continues from "Read More")

Parkrose High School student Angel Granados-Diaz, then 18, brought a loaded shotgun on to the campus.

Keanon saw Angel with his shotgun, and took the weapon from him, handing it to a teacher, and then wrapped his arms around Angel, while consoling him.

When the police arrived, they took Angel without incident.

"I feel like I was put in that room in that very moment for a reason, to protect those kids," Keanon told Good Morning America.

It turned out that Angel had gone there to commit suicide before Keenan intervened.

The gun had just one shell, and misfired before Keenan prevented a second chance the weapon could fire.

The court sentenced Angel to three years' probation, community service and mental health and substance abuse treatments.

"In that time, I felt compassion for him," Keanon told TV station KATU. "A lot of times, especially when you're young, you don't realize what you're doing until it's over."

Fortunately for everyone, Keanon was there to rescue Angel, and help him to receive a second chance at life. And America avoided yet another gun tragedy.
