SEATTLE - The King County Prosecutor expected to announce charges Tuesday morning against Aaron Ybarra, the man police say was behind Thursday's deadly campus shooting at Seattle Pacific University.
 
Students returning to campus received some community support Monday. St. Anne Catholic Church held a prayer service for SPU students and staff. On campus, people have left flowers, balloons, and handwritten messages.
 
Police said Aaron Ybarra, armed with a shotgun and a hunting knife, opened fire inside Otto Miller Hall, killing one young man and hurting two other students Thursday afternoon. Ybarra allegedly told detectives he had been "planning a mass shooting and wanted to kill as many people as possible." Jon Meis, a student security monitor, intervened and pinned Ybarra down until police arrived.
