A gunman who opened fire at Oikos University, a Christian school in Oakland, Calif., this morning, killing at least six people and wounding as many as five others, may be in custody, police said.
According to police, the gunman entered the school at 10:30 a.m., and fired multiple shots. Police have not said officially how many people were killed or wounded, but Oakland City Council President Larry Reid told ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco police told him that at least six people were dead.
Aerial video from the scene shows five bodies laid out under sheets on the school lawn.
Police described the suspect as an Asian male, 5-foot-9, wearing tan pants, according ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.
We should all mourn for our Country. It’s sick. On so many levels.
Oikos University is a Christian university that focuses on nursing. The school’s website describes students as “given the opportunity to obtain a Christian education that is based on solid Christian doctrine and ideology. Our main goal is to foster spiritual Christian leaders who abide by God’s intentions and to expand God’s nation through them.”
So what did any of these kids do to deserve such violence? Sickening. Time to read Lamentations, yet again.
