COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An educator who chased away the teenager who fatally shot three students at an Ohio high school says he’ll campaign for a state House seat.

Frank Hall tells Cleveland.com he wants to join the Legislature to advocate for school safety and rural Ohio .

Hall drew national headlines after the 2012 Chardon High School shooting because the then-assistant football coach charged toward the 17-year-old boy who opened fire in a cafeteria. Three students died, and three more were hurt. The shooter is serving life in prison.

The 45-year-old Hall says he’ll challenge state Rep. Diane Grendell in the Republican primary for House District 76 in northeastern Ohio.

Hall now works as a tutor and lives in Munson Township in Geauga (jee-AW’-guh) County. He and his wife have nine adopted children.
