While the suspect was reloading his gun, local outlets report a student building monitor was able to take down and pepper spray the suspect.
A few other students jumped in and held the suspect down until the police arrived. Some students say they recognized the shooter as a fellow SPU student, but that hasn't been confirmed. (Via KIRO)
Authorities are now looking into a white pickup truck allegedly driven by the shooter. KIRO reports the truck’s registration belongs to a parent of an SPU student. (Via Twitter / @Amy_Clancy)
