Original: Police and reporters are still trying to figure out exactly what happened when a former nursing student opened fire at a religious school in Oakland, California on Monday, in one of the deadliest school shootings ever to hit California. At least four people were killed, though the Associated Press reports five, and a suspect has been detained, but not necessarily arrested, after someone walked onto the campus of Oikos University and opened fire. Meanwhile, authorities are still searching the school for more victims. The Oakland Tribune's office has even been locked down, reporter Matt Krupnick tweeted.
The last time the state experienced a shooting this deadly was in 1989, when a drifter opened fire on a Stockton elementary school, killing five children, before turning the gun on himself.
