Seven Killed US College Shooting
April 3, 2012 by staff
Seven Killed US College Shooting, Seven people were killed and three injured when a gunman went on a shooting rampage at a private California religious college near San Francisco, police said.
The suspect — a local ethnic Korean resident who surrendered soon after the attacks — stood up in a classroom at Oikos University in East Oakland and shot one person at point blank range in the chest, then sprayed the room with bullets, a witness recounted.
The gunman, described as looking “crazy”, then allegedly went on a shooting spree through the Christian college, where victims were found in a number of locations when officers arrived after being alerted by a string of 911 calls.
Police did not immediately say what type of firearm the shooter used, or if he used multiple weapons.
Some 35 people were in or near the building at the time. Of those, 10 were hit and five were pronounced dead at the scene. Two others died later in hospital.
Survivors were later found hiding in locked classrooms and offices.
“There are seven (families) now that are having to deal with this horrendous act,” Oakland City Council president Larry Reid told CNN.
