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.

Meanwhile, the Oakland community has started mourning the loss of the loved ones who became random targets in the premeditated school shooting.

According to news reports, Goh had come to the school on Monday looking for a certain female administrator. When he was unable to find her, he took the receptionist hostage and stormed into a nursing class where he forced students to line up. He then began shooting as his classmates begged for their lives.

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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
