In the video, Lowe can be seen walking into a school hallway, holding the shotgun in one hand while keeping his other arm wrapped around Granados-Diaz. Lowe hands the gun off to another man, then puts the student into a bear hug. Lowe appears to console Granados-Diaz and walks backward, patting the student on the back.
"I walk in there, I get to the classroom, I'm in the classroom for 15, 20 seconds — you know, I ask the teacher, 'Is the student here?'" Lowe told KOIN. "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. In a fraction of a second, I analyzed everything really fast.
“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.”
Granados-Diaz pleaded guilty to felony possession of a firearm in a public building and misdemeanor possession of a loaded firearm in public, The Oregonian reported. He was sentenced to three years of probation Thursday and will receive any mental health treatment he needs, the newspaper reported.
