Condition of student shot at SPU upgraded to satisfactory

The 19-year-old Seattle Pacific University student critically wounded in the campus shooting on Thursday has been upgraded to satisfactory condition.

Sarah Williams, who was wounded by a shotgun blast, was transferred out of the intensive-care unit over the weekend, according to Susan Gregg, Harborview Medical Center’s spokeswoman.

Williams, of Phoenix, was upgraded from critical to serious condition on Friday and was breathing on her own, Gregg said.

Aaron Rey Ybarra is accused of walking into Otto Miller Hall on the SPU campus about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and shooting Williams and two other students, including Paul Lee, 19, of Portland, who died from his wounds. The gunman was tackled by a fourth student when he paused to reload.

The third person shot was Thomas Fowler Jr., 24, of Seattle, who was released from the hospital Friday.
