1 dead, 3 wounded in Seattle campus shooting

美国西雅图太平洋大学5日下午发生一起枪击事件,造成1人死亡、3人受伤。警方已经逮捕1名涉案嫌疑人。

来自美国西北部华盛顿州西雅图市的消息说,一名男子进入太平洋大学工程学院一座教学楼,持枪向学生射击。一名学生趁枪手重新装填子弹的间歇夺过枪支,多名警察随后把枪手扑倒在地。

一名学生说,事发时他正在楼内,听到多声枪响,最初以为是气球爆炸。3分钟后,校园保安赶到。

西雅图海景医学中心发言人确认,在枪击案中受伤的一名20多岁男子抵达医院后不治身亡;一名20岁男子伤势危重,另外两名22岁和24岁男子受轻伤。警方暂时没有发布嫌疑人身份信息。

西雅图太平洋大学是一所私立高等学府,位于西雅图城区以北偏西一个居民区内,现有约4270名学生。

A gunman killed one person and wounded at least three others Thursday at a university in Seattle before he was disarmed by a student security guard.

Police said the lone gunman entered into Otto Miller Hall, an engineering building, at the Seattle Pacific University and opened fire.

The gunman was held down and arrested by several officers after the student subdued the man as he was reloading.

The suspect was not immediately identified. Witnesses at the scene said the suspect appeared to be in his mid-30s and might not be a student at the school. A professor said ammunition rounds he saw scattered on the floor appeared to be from a shotgun.

A spokeswoman of the Harborview Medical Center said a man in his 20s died and a critically injured 20-year-old woman was taken to surgery. A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were listed in stable condition at the same hospital.

With over 4,200 students, the Seattle Pacific University is a private Christian liberal arts college about 6 km north of downtown Seattle.

"It's a day of tragedy and loss," Seattle Mayor Ed Murray told reporters at the university. "Once again, the epidemic of gun loss has come to Seattle - the epidemic that has been threatening this nation."

The shooting came after Elliot Rodger, a 22-year-old student, killed six and injured seven people before turning his gun on himself last month in Isla Vista near the University of California in Santa Barbara.(新华网)
