Another school shooting has claimed the lives of at least five people today after a gunman–who hasn’t been identified in reports yet but is in custody–walked into classrooms at Oikos University and opened fire. Six others were wounded.

The University, which is a Christian Med school, was in the middle of classes when the suspect walked in and began shooting. No motive has been given for the crime at this time, although it has been determined that the shooter was a student at the school. Police are currently looking for a Korean translator to help facilitate conversation with the man.

As news of the tragedy broke, Twitter users offered their thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims.

School shootings are always terrifying. It’s even more so when it happens a block from where you work. #shooting #oakland(image) 34 minutes ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
