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.
OH that nice Raider fan acting like Raider fan NOT

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 Gods intentions and to expand Gods 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.

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
Working so I can’t update except during breaks...
They will say something about needing to ban some religious schools.
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.
Like at Fort Hood....A military base of all places.
We just locked our doors....we are 1/2 from that school.
Prayers up for all. Dang I hate all shootings but there’s something even more evil about religious school shootings.
Suspect in custody per Oakland PD
Fox Business reporting five dead and six injured.
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.
There, fixed it for ABCMSNBCCNNCBS and FOX.
Prayers for the victims and their families.
I wonder if this was not gang and or race related?
The whites and asians won a victory over race-based preferences in colleges today....
could be a coincidence
