Accused SPU shooter claims he heard “voices”

Suspect in deadly 2014 shooting at Seattle Pacific University claims he heard the voices of God, Satan and Columbine gunman Eric Harris before the day he shot three people.

(KING) The suspect in a deadly shooting that took place at Seattle Pacific University in 2014 took the stand Monday in his trial.

Aaron Ybarra, 29, testified he thought God wanted to sacrifice and “show others of damage that goes on in the world.” He said he told his brother that a voice of one the Columbine shooters “demanded and commanded me to do a massacre.” He added that he drank so he wouldn’t hear the voices and calm his nerves.

Ybarra is accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Paul Lee and wounded two others.
