A gunman opened fire at a Christian university in California Monday, killing at least six people and wounding three more, authorities said. Police say they have a suspect in custody.
The shooting erupted around midmorning at Oikos University in Oakland and left six dead, according to City Council President Larry Reid, who said he was told the count by the police chief.
Police believe the shooter acted alone, Reid said. Authorities have not discussed a possible motive.
The suspect was taken into custody in the neighboring city of Alameda, according to law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.
Officer Johnna Watson did not give any other details about the suspect.
Authorities earlier described him as a heavyset Korean man in his 40s wearing khaki clothing.
