    Default Shooting on campus in Seattle

    Thursday June 5, 2014



    SEATTLE — A lone gunman armed with a shotgun and knife opened fire Thursday in a building at a small Seattle university, fatally wounding one person before a student subdued him with pepper spray as he tried to reload, police said.

    A student building monitor at Seattle Pacific University disarmed the gunman after he entered the foyer at Otto Miller Hall, and several other people jumped on top of him and pinned him down until police officers arrived, police said.

    A 19-year-old man died at Harborview Medical Center. Three other people were also taken to the hospital. A critically injured 20-year-old woman was taken to surgery, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said. A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were in satisfactory condition. One of those two men was not shot, Gregg said.

    None of the victims was immediately identified.

    At a news conference Thursday night, Assistant Police Chief Paul McDonagh said the suspect in custody was a [privileged] white male “approximately 26 years of age” who was not a student at the school. McDonagh said his name would not be released until he’s booked into jail for investigation of murder.

    The afternoon shooting came a week before the end of the school year, and the situation was particularly tense when police initially reported that they were searching for a second suspect.

    “It appears the suspect acted alone,” McDonagh said. Initially, “there was a report of another person with a weapon, but (investigators) have not confirmed that.”

    He said he did not know the gunman’s motive or intended target. Detectives are “working as quickly as we can to figure it out,” McDonagh said.

    The university locked down its campus for several hours, and it alerted students and staff to stay inside. Some students were taking finals in the same building that the shooter entered.

    “There are a number of heroes in this,” McDonagh said. “The people around him (the gunman) stepped up.”

    Multiple shots were fired, and the gunman had additional rounds, McDonagh said.

    “But for the great response by the people of Seattle Pacific, this incident might have been much more tragic,” he said.

    Both the young man who died and the young woman suffered gunshot wounds to the body, Seattle Fire Assistant Chief Jay Hagen told the news conference. One of the less seriously injured men suffered “pellet-type wounds” to his neck and chest.

    The fourth person taken to the hospital suffered minor injuries during the struggle with the suspect, police said.

    On Thursday evening, people packed the First Free Methodist Church on campus for a service of prayers and song. So many people crowded into the building that dozens of people gathered on a lawn near the church and formed their own groups as the sun set.

    “We’re a community that relies on Jesus Christ for strength, and we’ll need that at this point in time,” said Daniel Martin, president of Seattle Pacific University.

    About 4,270 undergraduate and graduate students attend the private Christian university. Its 40-acre campus is in a leafy residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle. The school canceled classes and other activities Friday.

    The Seattle campus hero who overpowered a gunman as he tried to reload his shotgun was identified today as Jon Meis, a teaching assistant at the school who was doubling as a security desk monitor.

    Meis, 22, used pepper spray to subdue accused gunman Aaron R. Ybarra after Ybarra allegedly shot several students at Seattle Pacific University Thursday and was reloading his weapon, officials told ABC News affiliate KOMO.

    The suspect, 26-year-old Aaron R. Ybarra, has a long history of mental health problems for which he had been treated and medicated, said his attorney, public defender Ramona Brandes. He is on suicide watch at the jail.

    "He is cognizant of the suffering of the victims and their families and the entire Seattle Pacific community," Brandes said. "He is sorry."

    Jon Meis is getting married soon and people who looked him up on the internet found his wedding registry for crate and barrel and Target at theknot and bought out everything that was available online and even started a honey moon fund for the new Meis's

    how sweet...I tried to buy him a place setting or something but like I said...everything available online was snapped up quickly

    they say he's getting a little weirded out by the attention tho

    I figured that, but wasn't sure. But you forgot about the assault on the Georgia courthouse, the kid in California, the Slenderman bullshit, etc. Fortunately for Canada, they'll never catch us.
