Former student fatally shoots 7 at California Christian institution

April 3, 2012

Police say a former nursing student at Oikos University -- a small Christian institution in Oakland, California -- had gone to the campus Monday morning to find a female administrator when he started shooting, killing 7 people and wounding 3 others. Oakland's police chief says the suspect, 43-year-old One L. Goh, began shooting people after learning the administrator was not at the campus. "We've learned that the suspect was upset with the administration at the school. He was also upset that students in the past, when he attended the school, mistreated him, disrespected him, and things of that nature," the police chief says. "He was having, we believe, some behavioral problems at the school and was asked to leave several months ago." The police chief says there were about 35 individuals on or near the campus when gunfire broke out. Of the 7 fatalities, 5 died at the scene and the other 2 at the hospital. Police say the deceased are 6 women and one man ranging in age from their 20s to 40s. The wound victims are in stable condition in hospital, and at least one individual has been released. Officers believe the suspect acted alone. Oakland Tribune | Associated Press
