Math teacher stops shooter at Colo. school


It happened at a middle school located a few miles from Columbine High School. Two students were wounded before the teacher, David Benke, could confront the suspect and wrestle him to the ground. (A bus driver, Steve Potter, helped hold the guy down.) Police arrested a man named Bruco Strongeagle Eastwood -- it's not clear what motivated him to open fire after school had ended for the day.
