Emergency officials walk with a gurney outside of Oikos University in Oakland, Calif., Monday, April 2, 2012. A suspect was detained in a shooting attack at a California Christian university.

Police have identified the suspect in Monday's deadly shooting at a Christian college in Oakland as 43-year-old One Goh.

The shooting erupted at Oikos University around 10:30 a.m. Monday morning.

“The suspect was initially believed to be still on the scene or inside," said Oakland Police Chief Howard Johnson, describing what officers faced when they arrived on campus. "Potential victims remained in the building either trapped by a locked door, which officers were unable to open, or unable to [be] evacuated due to injuries.”

In all, seven people were killed and three wounded.

Goh surrendered at a shopping center in nearby Alameda about an hour after the incident, Howard said. The former Oikos University student is now in the custody of the Oakland Police Department.
