SEATTLE (AP) — Prosecutors are expected to file charges Tuesday against the man accused of killing one person and wounding two others in a shooting at Seattle Pacific University.

King County prosecutor Dan Satterberg called a late morning news conference to announce charges against 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra of Mountlake Terrace.

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.

Police say Ybarra had at least 50 additional shotgun rounds and told investigators he planned to kill as many people as possible and himself.
