    Several people were shot and apparently some were killed when a gunman opened fire inside a classroom at an East Oakland private university, authorities said.
    The shooting happened at Oikos University at 7850 Edgewater Road about 10:40 a.m. Four bodies outside the school were covered by tarps, and rescue workers removed at least four bodies on stretchers.

    LA Times reporting several injured at Christian medical school.
    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/04/oakland-religious-college-shooting.html

    Presser: SWAT team is working on scene. Priority is to take care of injured. Not in custody at this time.

    More than 1 person has died.

    Make sure that area is safe; is likely shooter is still in area.

    Asking for any information from anyone about the shooter (seems they are not clear as to who he is).

    ETA: From article;
    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/04/02/BABJ1NTM3Q.DTL

    4 bodies covered by tarps, additional 4 people taken by ambulance to local area hospitals. Additional ambulances are standing by.

    God bless all who attended this college, a Christian school. In this Easter Week, it's particularly horrific to see such violence.

    Reports are that the gunman opened fire in a classroom, and is on the run.

    Description is a heavy-set Asian man dressed in khaki.

    Something now about people being shot in/around a street, median, divide; all dead there. Two shooting areas? Two shooters?

    Suspect arrested in a Ross clothing store parking lot, in Alameda. Can a local give info as to how far away this is?
