A man has died and another three people have been injured after a shooting at a university campus in Seattle. The incident happened at Seattle Pacific University in Washington state and a suspect is in custody. Police in the city said the lone gunman, who opened fire with a shotgun, was pepper-sprayed by a student security guard and disarmed as he was reloading. Harbourview Medical Centre spokeswoman Susan Gregg said a man in his 20s has died and a woman also in her 20s is in surgery with critical injuries. She added a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man are in a satisfactory condition. It is not known if the suspected gunman is wounded. One student told a local television channel, KIRO 7 TV, that he heard a loud bang from a nearby classroom which his teacher initially thought was a science experiment

The student, identified as Blake, said someone went out and came back and said: “I think someone’s been shot.” “I was scared for about a minute,” he said, adding he heard shouting and someone running past the door. Then “cops come in through another classroom which was connected to ours and they escorted us out”. He added: “I just saw piles of blood on the ground, just scattered throughout the lobby. “And I actually stepped in a puddle… I saw someone was on the ground. Someone was on top of them, their hands behind their head.” The university said on its website: “Our heartfelt prayers are with our entire community. All evening classes are cancelled.” Around 4,000 students attend the Christian university, which is about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.
