Two years after a deadly shooting at Seattle Pacific University, prosecutors have released surveillance footage showing the heroic actions of a student who disarmed the gunman.

The video shows the accused gunman, Aaron R. Ybarra, 26, shoot a female student with a shotgun. When Ybarra pauses to reload, student-safety monitor Jon Meis jumps from behind a corner, pepper-sprays the assailant in the face, tackles him to the floor and takes away the shotgun. After stashing the weapon out of the view of the security camera, Meis returns and grabs the killer in a headlock.
Ybarra, who had a history of mental illness, is scheduled to go on trial in September on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
