Oakland University Shooter Had Been Expelled, Teased; No Remorse


A portrait is emerging of One Goh, 43, a troubled man who apparently returned to Oikos University in Oakland, Ca., to settle a score, killing six students and a secretary, the Los Angeles Times reports. Goh had been expelled from Oikos this year “for behavioral problems, anger management,” Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said. Goh had been teased for his broken English, and he felt bullied and angry, Jordan said.

He arrived at the campus in an industrial section of East Oakland Monday morning looking for a certain administrator, but when he couldn't find her, he grabbed a secretary and headed to a classroom. He allegedly ordered the students inside to line up against the wall. When some refused, he opened fire, officials said. He had time during the rampage, authorities believe, to reload and continue shooting. “We don't believe that any of the victims were the ones that teased him,” Jordan said. “We believed he stopped [shooting] because people were able to use the phone. He could have heard people calling 911.” Police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said Goh “has not shown any sign of remorse for his actions.”
