Woman, 19, Remains In “Critical But Stable” Condition After SPU Shooting

SEATTLE (AP) — Two people wounded in Thursday’s shooting at Seattle Pacific University remain at a Seattlehospital.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says a 19-year-old woman is in critical condition Friday in the intensive care unit. She underwent a five-hour surgery for chest and abdominal wounds from a shotgun blast. Gregg says she has shown some improvement but remains on a breathing machine.

Also, a 24-year-old man is in satisfactory condition with pellet fragment wounds to his neck and chin. Gregg says he could be released Saturday. He is a SPU student and Gregg believes the 19-year-old woman also is a student.

A 19-year-old man died Thursday after arriving at the hospital.

And, Gregg says a 22-year-old man who was checked at the hospital Thursday is the man who subdued the shooter. Gregg says the 22-year-old had no physical injury but was undergoing mental anguish from the trauma.
