Oakland school shooting: five dead at Christian university
Five people have been confirmed dead and several others injured after a gunman opened fire inside a small Christian university in California.
Police have confirmed they have a suspect in custody.
The khaki-clad attacker, described as a heavy-set Asian man in his 40s, remained on the loose for several hours after he opened fire inside inside a lecture room where a nursing class was being held at the religious Oikos University, in East Oakland, California, at around 10.40 local time.
The college is popular with students from the Catholic Korean community.
Afterwards, four bodies outside the school could be seen covered in tarpaulin, while rescue workers removed others from inside the building on stretchers.
Nearby Highland Hospital said it had treated four victims following the incident, and others were still being taken out of the university hours after the shooting stopped.
