Police have identified the suspected gunman in Thursday’s shooting at Seattle Pacific University.

Aaron R. Ybarra, 26, has been booked in King County Jail on homicide charges, according to jail records. His bail has been denied.

A 19-year old man died in the attack, with numerous students suffering “pellet-type” injuries.

Susan Gregg, the spokesperson at Harborview Medical Center, said a 20-year-old woman seriously injured in the attack is out of surgery and in intensive care.

Police say a student building monitor subdued the gunman with pepper spray as he tried to reload.
