Oakland - An unidentified gunman opened fire at a private Christian college in Oakland on Monday, leaving "multiple victims" wounded, police said, and a suspect was being sought.

Local television reports showed students being evacuated from Oikos University by police and loaded into a SWAT vehicle as other armed officers took up positions around the school.

"Multiple shooting victims reported, medical on-scene," the Oakland police said in a statement, saying they were evacuating a nearby business.

Police said the suspect was in or near the area.

The school describes itself on its website as having been started to provide the "highest standard education with Christian value and inspiration".

      I think you'll find that we're more tolerant than most religious people, Hugo. I've never heard of an atheist shooter. Why would we bother? We've got better things to do than that. We have lives to lead. Go and be a christian - I can assure you none of us will stand in your way. It's only the religious who enjoy shoving their opinions down other people's throats. With atheism comes tolerance, pacifism and peace.
