Seattle police Capt. Chris Fowler, during a media briefing, said the gunman walked into SPU’s Otto Miller Hall and shot three people in the foyer with a shotgun. As the gunman was reloading, a student building monitor grabbed or tackled the gunman and other students then jumped him. They held him until police arrived.
The heroism of these students who grabbed and held onto a gunman at Seattle Pacific University prevented greater injury and loss of life, plain and simple.
Don’t let the NRA tell you that what we need is more guns on our campuses. More guns means more shooting. What we need is sensible gun control, comprehensive campus safety plans, and more people like these students who are prepared to take action to save lives.
