SEATTLE, Wash. –┬áMore than $60,000 has been donated online for the victims and hero of the shooting that left one dead and two injured at a small Seattle university.

As of Sunday afternoon, a fundraising page for Jon Meis, a student who pepper-sprayed and tackled the gunman Thursday at Seattle Pacific University, had grossed more than $44,000.

A fundraising page to cover the costs of Paul Lee’s funeral and Sarah Williams’ medical care is nearing $13,000.

Another page started by Williams’ family had raised nearly $5,000.

More donations are expected.

The outpouring of financial gifts and support followed days of mourning at the Christian university.

A lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire in a university building, killing 19-year-old Lee and wounding Williams, who remains hospitalized.

The other injured person has been released from the hospital.
