SEATTLE (AP) -- The only survivor of a shooting at a Seattle cafe where four other people were killed is expected to recover.

Harborview Medical Center reports Leonard Meuse has been upgraded from critical to serious condition. Spokeswoman Susan Gregg says he remains in the intensive care unit Thursday.

His father, Raymond Meuse, told The Seattle Times his 46-year-old son worked as a cook at the Cafe Racer. He was shot in the jaw and armpit. A bullet went through a lung but missed his heart and spinal column.

Police say the shooter, Ian Stawicki, also killed a woman in downtown Seattle Wednesday and drove her car to West Seattle where he shot and killed himself as officers closed in.
