April 4, 2012 – Death in Oakland, California: On Monday, Mr. Goh, 43 (pictured below), a naturalized American born in South Korea, went back to the college, the authorities said, apparently harboring a grudge against a school administrator who happened not to be at work that day. Armed with a semiautomatic handgun, he killed seven people, including two Korean-Americans, and wounded three more, said the police, who added that he had said his intention was to kill as many people at the school as he could. Pictured above, The police in Oakland searched an estuary for the gun believed to have been used in the shootings.
The shooting, with echoes of the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, in which a South Korean student killed 32 people, has shaken Korean-Americans in the area who belong to some 300 Korean churches and pick neighborhoods based on their schools’ standing. Follow the link below for the complete story.
