Deadly shooting

Unclear what happened and why, but several are dead at a religious college in California.

From CNN.com:

Seven people died and three others were wounded in a shooting at a small California religious college Monday, Oakland police said.

An Asian male in his 40s was detained as a suspect, but he has not yet been charged in the shooting, according to police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.
“We believe that this is the person,” Watson said.

Police would not release the suspect’s name or confirm his relationship to his victims or Oikos University in East Oakland, she said.

Oakland shootings

Something went terribly wrong in Oakland. Four police officers and one suspect are dead. 

From SF Gate:

The Oakland parolee who took the lives of four Oakland police officers knew he was a wanted man and deliberately skipped out on a meeting as part of a feud he was having with his parole agent, his family said today.

Lovelle Mixon’s shocked family, gathering at an East Oakland home where the parolee had been living until recently, apologized to the officers’ families and to the public, and said they don’t understand what might have triggered his burst of violence.

“He’s not a monster,” said his sister, 24-year-old Enjoli Mixon, whose apartment on 74th Avenue was where Mixon was slain in a gun battle with police that left two Oakland SWAT officers dead. “I don’t want people to think he’s a monster. He’s just not. He’s just not.”

“We’re crushed that this happened,” said his grandmother, Mary Mixon. “Our hearts and prayers go out to the officers’ families….This shouldn’t have happened.” (more… )
