Police in Oakland, Calif., have detained a suspect believed to be responsible for a shooting yesterday at a Christian university in which seven were killed and three injured, the Christian Post reports. Students at Oikos University -- which specializes in religious studies, music and vocational nursing with an emphasis on Korean students -- recognized the man who entered their classroom Monday morning as a former nursing student who hadn't been around for a few months, according to the Oakland Tribune. Police confirmed Monday evening the arrest of 43-year-old One Goh of Oakland, a Korean native and naturalized U.S. citizen. One had no known criminal record, and officers believed he acted alone. Timothy Yi, pastor of a nearby Korean Baptist church, said he was shocked by the shooting because of the school's reputation: "They just study Bible and nursing," he said. The victims were six women and one man ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s; it was the Bay Area's deadliest massacre since 1993.
