One person was killed in the shooting at Seattle Pacific University on Thursday, and two more were injured. But police say it would have been a lot worse if a 26-year-old engineering student named Jon Meis hadn't done what he did.
While the shooter was reloading, Jon ran in and pepper sprayed him. Then he tackled him and held him in a chokehold until help came. Which is the type of thing you can't really thank someone ENOUGH for. But the Internet is trying.
After Jon's name was released, someone found out he's getting married to his girlfriend Kaylie later this month, and shared a link to their gift registry on Twitter. And almost immediately, complete strangers bought EVERYTHING on it.
And then some. For example, you know those things you stick in the ends of an ear of corn when you eat it? Yeah, they're getting FORTY of those.
Then after the registry was done, someone else set up a fundraising page on GoFundMe.com to pay for their HONEYMOON. And the goal was to raise $5,000 . . . but they've already raised nearly 50 GRAND.
If you want to donate, just google the phrase, "Jon Meis GoFundMe.com". (KIRO7 / CBS Seattle / Fox News
