A 26-year-old gunman has opened fire at a small, Christian university in Seattle – killing one student and wounding three more with shotgun blasts.
And police say he could have killed others if it wasn’t for the actions of one heroic student who pepper sprayed the gunman and tackled him to the ground.
Students at Seattle Pacific University say Jon Meis saved countless lives when he sprang into action as the shooter stopped to reload his weapon Thursday afternoon.
Meis, a 26-year-old engineering student, is engaged to be married and has ‘everything to live for’ friends said. But he risked his life and ended the murderous rampage.
‘I’m proud of the selfless actions that my roommate, Jon Meis, showed today taking down the shooter. He is a hero,’ tweeted Matt Garcia.
