Police are investigating a shooting at an East Oakland religious school that left several people injured, authorities said.

The shooting happened at Oikos University at 7850 Edgewater Road about 10:40 a.m.

There are reports of several people hurt inside the school, and police are reportedly searching for a suspect still on the scene.

Police, including members of the SWAT team, are taking up positions around the building.

Seems to be a Korean and/or American Christian School.

From the web page: http://oikosuniversity.org

Wonder what happened.

Keep us updated.

You just know the liberal loonies will have something to say about needing to ban religious schools.

RT @KCBSNews: Oakland shooting: multiple bodies seen under tarps outside Oikos vocational school.

Your source lacks details. FAIL.

From their website:

“At Oikos University, students are 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.

To accomplish our mission, we actively seek out, educate and train students, ministers, teachers and church leaders to become more qualified leaders. Oikos University has rapidly grown in its quality and size to become an institution that contributes to and positively changes their surrounding environment—and the world in general.

I encourage you to become a part of this wonderful community of faith and experience life-changing programs and events.

Jongin Kim, Ph.D., D.Min.

Korean dude shot 5 people up there just now. #CNN

Oikos Campus California...police brought a tactical vehicle and are in a shooting stance.

Listening to KCBS: They’re saying the shooter appears to be holed up in the building #Oikos #Oakland

Suspect in Oikos University shootings is described as an Asian male with a heavy build, wearing tan or khaki clothing. http://bit.ly/H7R2cG

Another shooting in a place where legal firearms are not permitted by law. Churches, court houses, hospitals, schools, etc! Liberals never learn, do they?

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Hate to repeat the old mantra but it is once again proved true in the extreme.

Just horrible.

Per SFGATE it was a student who stood up and mowed down the nursing class.

This is the time of year when some students start to realize they are flunking out and then go crazy. This happened to one of my college roomates - she didn’t shoot anyone but was put in a mental institution for several months.

here’s a different version than ‘official’ version:

from MSNBC “shooter was a man in her nursing class who got up and shot one person at point-blank range in the chest before spraying the room with bullets”

Hearing reports the shooter went to a nearby Safeway and turned himself in at the customer service counter.

Update:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/04/02/BABJ1NTM3Q.DTL&tsp=1
the suspect is 43-year-old One Goh of Oakland. The suspect used a .45-caliber handgun, spraying a classroom with gunfire and firing additional shots as he ran out, said the source...
Authorities captured Goh more than five miles away in an Alameda shopping mall an hour after the shooting.
“She said he looked crazy all the time,” Angie Johnson, 52, said the victim told her, “But they never knew how far he would go.”
Lisa Resler, 41, was shopping with her 4-year-old daughter when she saw a security guard and Alameda police detaining the suspect outside the Safeway store. The man appeared “very sedated” and “looked so out of it,” Resler said. She described him as an Asian male who was wearing a beanie and khaki pants.


Prediction;

The man will have had a history with the mental health system, and will have gone to a state, like Arizona, that will not have required a background check as to his psychiatric history, to acquire his weapons legally. This will lead to a push to federalize all gun laws.

“You just know the liberal loonies will have something to say about needing to ban religious schools.”

Just remember: if you outlaw religious schools, only outlaws will have religious schools.

Already done. The jackasses in Congress, because of “poor persecuted Trayvon”.

“...Liberals never learn, do they?...”

On the contrary...they learn VERY well. They have this down to a science, actually.

They count on this crap happening in these kinds of places, so they can kick and scream even louder for more gun control, and then sit back smugly and watch as the spineless superheros on our side give in and cave to their demands.

It’s what they do.

They can’t have their little Utopian socialist workers paradise as long as there are people able to forcibly and lethally resist them.

So...they dance and revel in the deaths of innocent folks because it suits their ultimate agenda - disarming American citizens who are disinclined to acquiesce to their vision of paradise...

It’s pretty simple, really.
