PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) — A Portland high school coach who confronted and comforted an armed student back in May has been named a hero by Time magazine.

On May 17, Angel Granados-Diaz brought a loaded shotgun into Parkrose High School while experiencing a mental health crisis.

When Keanon Lowe, the school’s track and football coach and also a campus security guard, saw Granados-Diaz with the gun, he disarmed the teen and then embraced him.

Surveillance video of the encounter was released in October, about a week after Granados-Diaz was sentenced to three years of probation.
