Published:
SEATTLE — More than $60,000 has been donated through online fundraising for the victims and hero of the shooting at a small Seattle university.
As of Sunday afternoon, a fundraising page for Jon Meis, a student credited with thwarting the shooting at Seattle Pacific University, had grossed more than $44,000. A fundraising page to cover the costs of victim Paul Lee’s funeral and costs for the medical care of Sarah Williams was nearing $13,000. A third page started by Williams’ family had raised nearly $5,000. All the tallies are expected to grow.
The outpouring of financial gifts and support followed days of mourning at the Christian university.
On Thursday, a lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire at an engineering building at the university, fatally shooting 19-year-old Lee and wounding Williams, who remains hospitalized.
