Murder charge filed in SPU shooting

SEATTLE — Prosecutors have filed murder and attempted murder charges against the Mountlake Terrace man accused of killing one person and wounding two others in a shooting at Seattle Pacific University.
King County prosecutor Dan Satterberg said Tuesday that 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra will face one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder in the first degree.
Satterberg said the sentencing range for the charges is 69 to 86 years in prison, but authorities will seek an exceptional sentence of life in prison.
Ybarra was pepper-sprayed and wrestled to the floor by a student security monitor and held for police officers responding to Thursday’s shooting.
Ybarra was held without bail and has been on suicide watch at King County Jail. His lawyer says he has a long history of mental problems.
