A gunman opened fired Thursday at Seattle Pacific University, wounding four people before faculty and staff disarmed him, the Seattle Police Department said.

The gunman was reloading when the staff stopped him, police reported on the department’s official Twitter account.

The accused shooter, whose identity was not immediately released, is in custody, and no outstanding suspects are being sought, police said

At least two people — one man and one woman — suffered life-threatening injuries, police said. Another man and woman were in stable condition, they said.

The shooting began inside Otto Miller Hall, which houses the university’s science, math and engineering departments.

Witness Briana Clarke told CNN affiliate KOMO she was in Otto Miller Hall when she heard shots and then saw students running.

“I first heard two muffled shots that I thought were two helium balloons,” she said.

Then she said she saw between five and seven students who appeared to be injured.

The school was locked down during the shooting, and it was lifted after police cleared all the buildings on the campus.

“I’m in my office with four students with the blinds closed. We’re sitting on the floor with the door locked, very scared,” university counselor Karen Altus told KOMO.

Seattle Pacific is a Christian university with a student population of 4,270. It is located in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood.
