It was June 5th and the end of the semester. Dozens of first responders descended on the campus of Seattle Pacific University, and every police officer who was there filed an incident report.
They are all part of 319 pages of documents obtained by KOMO 4 News through a public records request. The reports tell the story of, in one officer's words, a scene that was "one of chaos and confusion."
Another officer refers to seeing a severely wounded victim on the sidewalk and then walking into Otto Miller Hall to find students who had "a dazed look on their faces." He then saw shotgun rounds on the floor.
There is also what can only be described as a heart wrenching account from one officer who held Paul Lee, who was killed in the shooting.
Blood soaked, that officer then methodically went room to room with other officers finding scared and confused students, many hiding under their desks.
The suspected shooter, Aaron Ybarra, was already detained, but at the time officers thought there may have been a second shooter. That was later found not to be the case.
Ybarra is accused of killing one student, and wounding two others.
