Donations Swell For Seattle Campus Shooting Hero

Updated: Sunday, June 8 2014, 08:04 PM CDT

More than $60,000 has been donated online for the victims and hero of the shooting that left one dead and two injured at a small Seattle university.

As of Sunday afternoon, a fundraising page for Jon Meis, a student who pepper-sprayed and tackled the gunman Thursday at Seattle Pacific University, had grossed more than $44,000. A fundraising page to cover the costs of Paul Lee's funeral and Sarah Williams' medical care is nearing $13,000. Another page started by Williams' family had raised nearly $5,000. More donations are expected.

The outpouring of financial gifts and support followed days of mourning at the Christian university.

A lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire in a university building, killing 19-year-old Lee and wounding Williams, who remains hospitalized. The other injured person has been released from the hospital.
