One Goh, the suspect in Monday's deadly shooting spree at Oikos University in Oakland, will make his first court appearance today where he will answer to charges of seven counts of murder.
Police have only begun to unravel what motivated Goh to show up at the university Monday morning and allegedly kill seven people and wound many others. But police have said that Goh, a South Korean native, felt picked on by other students, especially over his lack of English skills. That, along with the fact he had been expelled from the university in January, was in serious debt, and had recently lost his brother, may have caused the 43-year-old nursing student to snap and take revenge on his classmates.
Goh has shown no remorse for the killings, and he is refusing to tell police where he tossed the gun used in Monday's mass killing.
Those killed in the shooting have been identified as Katleen Ping, 24, of Oakland; Lydia Sim, 21, of Hayward; Bhutia Tshering, 38, of San Francisco; Sonam Choedon, 33, of El Cerrito; Judith Seymore, 53, of San Jose; Kim Eunhea, 23, of Union City; and Doris Chibuko, 40, of San Leandro.
