    Authorities have released a video that shows part of a former Oregon football star’s successful effort to disarm a student who brought a shotgun to a Portland high school.

    The video released Friday by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office shows Keanon Lowe and the student emerge from a classroom and into a hallway at Parkrose High School with Lowe in possession of the shotgun.

    Lowe recalled lunging at the armed student on May 17 as other students ran screaming out a back door.

    The video shows Lowe hand the gun to a teacher and then wrap the student in a hug. Lowe works as a coach and security guard at the school. He's also a former assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles.

    The suspect, 19-year-old Angel Granados-Diaz, pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm in a public building.
