Police say the student building monitor disarmed the gunman as he was reloading. Several police officers held the gunman down after he was disarmed.

Police say the gunman is under arrest. The Otto Miller building where the afternoon shooting took place has been secured.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says a man in his 20s has died and a critically injured 20-year-old woman has been taken to surgery. Gregg says a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man are in satisfactory condition.

Gregg says the hospital is not expecting any more injured people from the shooting.

About 4,270 students attend the private Christian university, located in a residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.
