SEATTLE (AP) -- Police say a Seattle Pacific University student on Thursday disarmed a lone gunman who entered a building and shot four people.

A hospital spokeswoman says one man has died and three other people are injured, one critically.

Police say the student building monitor disarmed the gunman as he was reloading. Several students held the gunman until police arrived.

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.

SEATTLE (AP, MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Seattle police say four victims of a shooting on the campus of Seattle Pacific University have been taken to a hospital and one suspect is in custody.

Police now say they are no longer looking for a second suspect.

Officer Drew Fowler confirms four victims have been transported for medical care after the shooting late Thursday afternoon. One man and one woman have life-threatening injuries, while another man and woman are in stable condition. It isn't clear whether the suspected gunman is also wounded.

The university posted online that "the campus is in lockdown due to a shooting near Otto Miller Hall."

A woman who answered the phone at the school's security office quickly disconnected, saying no one could talk.

About 4,000 students attend the Christian university about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.
