SEATTLE (AP) — Police say a lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire Thursday in a building at a small Seattle university, fatally injuring one person before he was subdued by a student as he tried to reload.

Police say a student building monitor at Seattle Pacific University disarmed the gunman and several other students held him until police arrived at the Otto Miller building.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says a 19-year-old man died and a critically injured 20-year-old woman was taken to surgery. A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were in satisfactory condition. Gregg says one of those two men was not shot.

None of the victims was immediately identified.

About 4,270 students attend the private Christian university. Its 40-acre campus is in a residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.
