A man went on a shooting spree at a small college in Oakland, California. Police reported that the man was upset at the school for dismissing him. Seven victims were killed execution-style.
According to Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan, the shooter walked into Oikos University Monday morning, took a reception hostage hostage and was looking for one of the school administrators. Soon after, the man went into a classroom, lined up the students against the wall and shot them one by one.
“This was a calculated, cold-blooded execution in the classroom,” he said.
The suspect, 43-year-old One Goh, was arrested after he surrendered to police at a grocery store. Police are expecting to lay charges on him by Wednesday.
According to Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, most of the victims were from the Korean-American community.
“No American mayor wants to have this situation,” she said. “It seems over the last decade, we’ve gotten used to seeing senseless mass killings like this, and we’ll have to question the availability of guns and the need for other services in our community.”
A memorial service is planned Tuesday evening for the victims at the Korean Methodist church.
