Townville Fire Chief Billy McAdams read a statement on behalf of Jamie Brock on Thursday. Brock is the firefighter who responded to the scene at Townville Elementary. He is credited with taking down and subduing the teenage shooting suspect.  

The statement read by Chief McAdams on Brock's behalf reads: 

      "The true heroes of yesterday’s senseless tragedy are the teachers that put their lives on the line to protect the students. The principal,                through the fears of her own, she did what was right to ensure the safety of her school. They deserve to be called heroes and I tip my hat          to them.

      For the victims and for little Jacob, who is fighting to survive, the young children that were affected and continue to be affected by this,           the parents who will be called upon to put all the pieces back together, for my comrades, my brothers who witnessed what we should               never have to witness and assisted alongside without hesitation, for all these, I ask your prayers.

      My reaction to yesterday’s event was no different than any other fire or law enforcement personnel who put their lives on the line to                 protect their communities every day. God’s plan is bigger and we are Crossville strong. This will not take us down and brighter days are           ahead as we begin to heal."
