Oregon authorities released stunning surveillance footage on Friday showing how a football coach de-escalated a situation with an armed student in a local high school.

The coach, Keanon Lowe, could be seen in the footage disarming the student and hugging him. The student, apparently distraught, clasped his arms around Lowe and the pair moved down the hallway together.

Angel Granados-Diaz, 19, walked into the Parkrose High School in Portland on May 17 with a shotgun concealed under his trench coat.

Lowe, a former football star at the University of Oregon, told reporters in a press conference shortly after the incident that he grabbed the student's weapon the moment he saw it, but also felt compassion or him.
