IEEE Seattle section heard the shocking news of campus shooting at Seattle Pacific University. We extend our sympathy, prayer and support to the entire Seattle pacific Community. Our Condolences and prayers go to Victims, their families and their friends.
Our webmaster of IEEE Seattle Pacific University student branch , Jon Meis tackled the 26-year-old gunman Aaron Ybarra, who was not a student, and hitting him with pepper spray while he was reloading a shotgun. Ybarra had already injured several victims, one of whom died. Jon Meis put the alleged gunman in a chokehold and held him on the ground until police arrived.
We are proud of our heroic member, Jon Meis. All of us, members of IEEE , we pledge to be leaders to bring peace to our community and the world.
