‘Heroes’ Credited With Subduing Gunman During Shooting At Small Seattle University

A quick-acting student helped prevent more bloodshed Thursday afternoon during a deadly rampage by a lone gunman at a small Seattle university, the Associated Press reports.

While the gunman paused to reload, a student building monitor disarmed him, and others helped subdue him.

The shooting killed a 19-year-old man and wounded two others at Seattle Pacific University.

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

A 19-year-old man was fatally shot and two other young people were wounded after the gunman entered the foyer at Otto Miller Hall on the Seattle Pacific University campus and started shooting Thursday afternoon. When he paused to reload, a student building monitor disarmed him. The gunman had additional rounds and a knife, McDonagh said.

The gunman was not a student.
