Four people shot at Seattle Pacific University

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police say there are four victims in a shooting on the campus of Seattle Pacific University. Police say one suspect is in custody and they are looking for a second person armed with a handgun.

The Seattle Fire Department says one victim has been taken to Harborview Medical Center. Live television video from the scene showed a second person being loaded into an ambulance. Medic units have lined up three more stretchers.

The university posted online that “the campus is in lockdown due to a shooting at Otto Miller Hall.”

A woman who answered the phone at the school’s security office quickly disconnected, saying no one could talk.

About 4,000 students attend the Christian university about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle

Horrible news. Two of my nieces graduated from SPU. Thoughts and prayes for all involved.
