March 31, 2023

On April 2, 2012, a mass shooting occurred at Oikos University, a Korean Christian school located in Oakland, California. The shooting resulted in the deaths of seven people and injured three others.

The shooter, One L. Goh, was a former nursing student at the university who had been expelled from the school a few months prior to the shooting. Goh had reportedly become upset over being denied his tuition refunded. He left the school with a grudge against the administration and some of the students.

On the day of the shooting, Goh entered the campus armed with a .45 caliber handgun and opened fire on students and staff members in a classroom. The shooting occurred in the middle of the school day, and many of the students were caught off guard. The seven victims ranged in age from 21 to 53 years old.

After the shooting, Goh fled the scene in a car but was later arrested at a supermarket in Alameda, California. He confessed to the shooting and was charged with seven counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

The shooting at Oikos University was one of the deadliest school shootings in California’s history, and it sparked a national conversation about gun control and mental health. The tragic events at Oikos University will forever be remembered as a reminder of the importance of addressing mental health and gun control issues in the United States.
