A lone gunman has killed one and wounded at least three others on Thursday at Seattle Pacific University, a Christian university of about 4,000 near downtown Seattle.
Police have arrested 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra after a student fought him while he was reloading his shotgun. The student, Jon Meis, was working as a building monitor and reportedly pepper-sprayed him, put him in a chokehold and tackled him to the ground.
The campus went into lockdown for several hours. The suspect was carrying extra shotgun shells and a knife.
This isn’t the first shooting at a Christian college in recent months. In November, one student was killed in a dorm shooting at Liberty University in Virginia.
