In yet another deadliest U.S. school shooting in five years, a Christian college in California witnessed a man indiscriminately killing at least seven people and wounding three on Monday. The sentence that preceded the shooting: "Get in line and I'm going to kill you all."
According to reports, a 43-year-old Korean-American is suspected to have carried the attack. He later surrendered at a Safeway grocery store several miles away from the scene at Oikos University in Oakland. The police believe that the suspect carried a handgun and acted alone.
The suspect, Goh, was a former student at Oikos, which has links to the Korean-American Christian community. It was not known why Goh had left the school and the motive for the killing could not be established so far. This killing spree comes just after a month of the Ohio shooting incident where a student gunman opened fire inside a high school cafeteria, killing three students.
According to the Oakland police Chief Howard Jordan: “The Oakland police are trying to interview the suspect and put all the reasons behind the shooting together.”
According to witnesses, the gunman entered a reception area of the college in the morning and opened fire before walking into one of two classes in session and spraying the room with bullets.
The Christian college shooting incident was the deadliest outburst of gun violence at a U.S. school. People still remember the 2007 Virginia Tech incident when a student shot 32 people on that campus before killing himself.
