(IBT) A harrowing surveillance video just released by Seattle police shows a student at Seattle Pacific University pepper-spraying a gunman inside one of the school buildings, then running at him and tackling him to the ground.

The confrontation occurred after the gunman, Aaron Ybarra, then 27, fired on a female student. That’s when hero Jon Meis, 22, raced into the room.
