SEATTLE, WA - Seattle police say the suspect in a shooting at a small university that left one dead was not a student.
    
At a news conference Thursday night, police said the suspect in custody was a white male "approximately 26 years of age."
    
He was armed with a shotgun and knife when he opened fire Thursday afternoon at a building at Seattle Pacific University. Police say a student building monitor subdued the gunman with pepper spray as he tried to reload.
