Four victims confirmed in Seattle Pacific University shooting. One male and one female with life-threatening injuries.
Suspect is under custody.
One person was killed and three others injured Thursday afternoon after a lone gunman opened fire with a shotgun at Seattle Pacific University. Police have one suspect in custody, an adult male who was subuded after being pepper-sprayed by a student security guard. No one else is being sought in connection with the shooting.
All of the victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center. One 20-year-old male victim died at the hospital. Another male victim was reported in stable condition. In addition, one woman had life threatening injuries and another woman was reported in stable condition. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
A 26-year-old gunman opened fire on the Seattle Pacific University campus Thursday afternoon, killing one and injuring two others.
At 3:23 PM, police received a report of a gunman at Otto Miller Hall, just north of 3rd Avenue and W. Nickerson Street.
The suspect fired several rounds from a shotgun and began reloading his weapon when a student building monitor heroically intervened. The monitor, a man in his 20s, pepper sprayed the suspect before tackling him to the ground. Several bystanders also seized upon the suspect—who was also carrying a knife and additional ammunition—and took his gun.
Police arrived within four minutes of the first report of the shooting and called for medics, who arrived on scene and began transporting their first patient less than 10 minutes after the first 911 call.
Medics transported a man in his 20s with critical injuries to Harborview Medical Center, where he succumbed to his wounds.
Medics also transported a second woman in her 20s, also with critical injures, a man in his 20s with pellet wounds to his neck and chest—he is currently in stable condition—and another man in his 20s with minor injuries sustained during the struggle with the suspect.
As police began searching the campus, SPU staff implemented the school’s active-shooter emergency plan, previously developed by school security and Seattle police, alerting students and staff to shelter in place. Police SWAT teams swept through the campus, and found a number of students and faculty members hiding in classrooms and offices.
Amidst the chaos of the incident, police had received reports of a second suspect, but officers and detectives have determined the gunman acted alone.
So far, police have not found any connection between the suspect, Seattle Pacific University or any of the victims. Detectives are searching additional locations for evidence in the case, and plan to book the suspect into the King County Jail for Investigation of Murder.
Update at 11:30 PM -
Detectives have booked the suspect, Aaron R. Ybarra, 26, into the King County Jail.
A 26-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center Wednesday after scaling a downtown building so he could pray and “be closer to God” only to fall from his perch.
Around 6:30 a.m. officers were summoned to 5 Ave and Pike Street when a man high on a ledge above a storefront awning began calling for help.
The man told officers he had fallen about thirty feet to the ledge and was unable to move. Firefighters rescued the man and transported him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to the injured man, he had taken methamphetamines, pain killers and another unidentified drug before climbing the building and praying. Thanks to the firefighters, the man will live to pray another day.

A man injured in a stabbing near Victor Steinbrueck Park Tuesday morning was able to describe the knife used in the attack, but not the person wielding the blade.
After a witness called 911 and reported the stabbing just after 10 AM Tuesday, police found the bloodied 41-year-old man sitting on a bench in the park, near Western Ave. and Virginia St.
The man was reluctant to talk to officers about what had happened and told officers he “didn’t see” his attacker, but gave a description of the knife.
The man, who was bleeding from stab wounds in both of his thighs, also told officers he didn’t want to be listed as a victim in their report on the incident.
Medics transported the man to Harborview with non-life-threatening injuries.
