One person was killed and three others were wounded Thursday in a shooting on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said a man in his 20s died, and a 20-year-old woman was in surgery with critical injuries. Gregg had no additional information on the man who died, and said two other gunshot victims, a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, were in satisfactory condition.

Gregg said the hospital was not expecting any more victims from the shooting. Earlier, Seattle police said two men and two women were wounded in the shooting.

Authorities said they had a suspect in custody. Earlier, police said a second gunman was being sought, but later revised their report, saying no other suspects were at large.

The shooting, which occurred around 3:30 p.m., took place at Otto Miller Hall, an academic building, Q13Fox.com reported. Seattle police said the suspect entered the building and began shooting before pausing to reload. Staff members then disarmed him before police arrived.

The university issued a lockdown after the shooting, but lifted it shortly before 4:30 p.m.

Seattle Pacific University, a private Christian university, has about 4,000 students. The university sits on a 40-acre campus located in a residential neighborhood on the north slope of Queen Anne Hill, about 10 minutes from Seattle's downtown.
