    School shooting in Oakland CA (USA) - 5(?) dead

    This apparently happened a few hours ago - at least 5 dead at a small nursing school (Oikos University). Not much info out there yet.

    One of my patients just told me about this.

    update: 7 dead and 3 injured, and the shooter has been apprehended. Shooter was a former student of the school, but details are still sketchy.

    This is reminding me of the late '90s. It's spring. Time for school shootings.

    I'm glad that the shooter has been apprehended.
    I wonder about his motive.

    I rarely comprehend any of the "motives" behind shooting sprees like this (I'm not sure if I comprehend the motives for most shootings, baring true cases self-defense). Anyway, it sounds like this shooting could be another case of someone coming unhinged.
    Angie Johnson told the San Francisco Chronicle that she saw a young woman leave the building with blood coming from her arm and crying: "I've been shot. I've been shot."

    The injured woman said the shooter was a man in her nursing class who got up and shot one person at point-blank range in the chest before spraying the room with bullets, Johnson said.

    "She said he looked crazy all the time," she said the victim told her, "but they never knew how far he would go.
