A Seattle hospital spokeswoman says one man in his 2020'sas died and a woman is critically injured after a shooting Thursday afternoon on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.    
Two other people are less seriously hurt. Police say a suspect is in custody.
Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg had no additional information on the young man who died. She says a 20-year-old woman is in surgery with critical injuries while a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man are in satisfactory condition.
 Gregg says the hospital is not expecting any more injured people from the shooting.
 It wasn't clear whether the suspected gunman was injured.
The university posted online that ``the campus is in lockdown due to a shooting near Otto Miller Hall.''        

Police say SWAT officers continue to clear buildings on campus.        

 About 4,270 students attend the private Christian university, located in a residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.
