Video Shows Shooting and Heroism at Seattle Pacific

June 15, 2016

Following a lengthy court fight, officials have released a video showing a shooting and a heroic student stopping the shooter at Seattle Pacific University in 2014, The Seattle Times reported. The video shows a man opening fire on students, one of whom died. Families of those shot argued against the release of the video, as did the university. But press outlets successfully argued that the video was public information. The Times article linked to in this item includes only the portion of the video in which a student heroically stops the shooter from killing more people, and does not show the shootings themselves.
