OAKLAND — A former nursing student who opened fire in a small Christian university Monday morning, killing seven and wounding three more, first told his former classmates to line up against a wall before pulling a handgun and sending students fleeing in panic, a witness said.

"The people started running and he started shooting," said Gurpreet Sahota, who relayed an account from his sister-in-law, Dawinder Kaur.
