SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police have released three 911 calls made while a lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire at a small Seattle university on Thursday.

The calls, released on Friday, were made by students and witnesses to the shooting, describing a chilling scene in which the suspect walks up behind a student and opens fire. The calls also feature a student who was wounded in the neck from shotgun pellets.

Police say the calls show "remarkable calm and resourcefulness of students, faculty, and other witnesses "

On Friday, 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra was ordered held without bail. Police say Ybarra admitted to detectives after his arrest that he wanted to kill as many people as possible and then himself. A 19-year-old student died and another remains in serious condition.
