An attorney gave notice Monday that an insanity defense was being considered for a man charged with killing one student and wounding two others at a Seattle university.
The president of Seattle Pacific University announced that a scholarship has been named for the student who stopped a fatal shooting on campus.
The gunman who killed one student and wounded two others at a small Seattle college last week had stopped taking his medications because he “wanted to feel the hate,” and he detailed his plans in a handwritten journal for two weeks before the attack, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
Seattle college student Jon Meis, who has shied away from the spotlight since he ended a campus shooting by pepper-spraying the gunman last week, issued a written statement Monday saying it’s hard to accept his status as a hero.
People have donated more than $22,000 in less than a day through an online fundraiser for the student who thwarted the shooting.
While many are still reeling from Thursday’s tragedy, others are showing their gratitude of Meis’ actions with a small yet touching gesture: contributing to his wedding gift registry.
