california,Oakland shooting

A gunman opened fire at a private Christian college in Oakland today, killing at least seven people and wounding three, authorities say.

The suspect, believed to be a former nursing student at Oikos University, was later detained in Alameda, about six miles north of Oakland.

Authorities earlier described the gunman as a heavyset Korean man in his 40s wearing khaki clothing.

Within minutes of the mid-morning shooting, SWAT teams took position around the building, some smashing glass with sledgehammers and rushing inside as officers helped students evacuate the campus.
