AP--The man blasting away with a shotgun paused to reload, and Jon Meis saw his chance.


The 22-year-old building monitor pepper-sprayed and tackled the gunman Thursday afternoon in Seattle Pacific University's Otto Miller Hall, likely preventing further carnage, according to police and university officials. Meis and other students subdued him until officers arrived and handcuffed him moments later.


Police said the shooter, who killed a 19-year-old man and wounded two other young people, had additional rounds and a knife.


"I'm proud of the selfless actions that my roommate, Jon Meis, showed today taking down the shooter," fellow student Matt Garcia wrote on Twitter. "He is a hero." Anonymous people also were taking actions to support Meis.
