Seven people died, and three more were wounded in the shooting at Oikos University in Oakland, Ca., a small Christian institution. The Oakland Tribune called it the Bay Area’s worst mass killing in almost 20 years. Police arrested One Goh, 43, of Oakland, a Korean native and naturalized U.S. citizen. After the shooting, One drive a victim’s car five miles to a supermarked, where he announced he had shot people.
University president Pastor Jongin Kim said the shooter had previously been an Oikos nursing student but was no longer enrolled; he was unsure whether the shooter had been expelled or had dropped out voluntarily. Monday’s body count was the area’s worst since the July 1, 1993, massacre in San Francisco, when a gunman rampaged through two floors of a law office, killing eight victims before committing suicide. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan said, “We’ll have to question the availability of guns and the need for other services in our community.”
