SEATTLE » Readers of the popular social media website Reddit are being asked to buy wedding gifts for the young man being hailed as a hero after he subdued a gunman who opened fire on a Seattle college campus.

Jon Meis and other students stopped the gunman Thursday at Seattle Pacific University.

A 26-year-old suspect was apprehended following the shooting that left a 19-year-old man dead and two other young people wounded. Police say the quick action by Meis likely saved lives.

The 22-year-old Meis is a dean's list electrical engineering student and is planning to marry his girlfriend later this month. A post on the Seattle Reddit page says: "This is the wedding registry for the man who subdued the SPU gunman. You know what to do."

A voice message at a phone listing for his parents' house asks for privacy and prayers for the family of the man killed.

It's great to reward these heroes and to encourage others to step up when the opportunity presents itself. This gunman probably would have killed scores of other people if it wasn't for this brave man.
