Oakland College Shooting Suspect Identified
Goh, a former student, “stood up and began shooting” in a classroom according to Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan. The Los Angeles Times reports that the gunfire was not limited to the classroom.
Witnesses described a heavy-set Asian man in his 40s calmly opening fire at the college in an industrial area near Oakland International Airport, which has a largely Korean student body of about 100.
The San Francisco Chronicle described the scene at Oikos University after Goh allegedly started shooting.
Paul Singh, 20, of Santa Clara said his sister was among the victims shot and survived.
Singh said his sister, Dawinder Kour, 19, was attending her nursing class when the shooter burst through the door.
"He grabbed a lady that was filing, and brought her in and said everybody get against the board," Singh said outside of Highland Hospital, where his sister recovered from a gun shot wound to the forearm.
What happened next in the classroom was not clear, Singh said.
"My sister called me, running, saying I've been shot," he said.
Singh said his sister recognized the shooter as a former student who she had last seen three months ago, after he dropped out of the program.
Goh was arrested about five miles from the shooting scene in Alameda.
Officials have not released the names of any victims.
