I think success would be when we can take down that sign that says our schools are a gun-free zone, or maybe change the sign — cross off gun-free and put victim-free.

This was a calculated, cold-blooded execution in the classroom. … This happened within minutes. We don’t think the victims had any opportunity to resist, any opportunity to surrender.
Oakland, Calif. Police Chief Howard Jordan • Discussing yesterday’s shooting at Oikos University, a private Christian college, which killed seven and wounded three others. Jordan says the suspect, 43-year-old One Goh, didn’t show remorse for his actions, which appear to have been the result of Goh’s expulsion from the school. Investigators believe that Goh intended to target a specific female administrator, but she wasn’t at the school at the time. Goh was also believed to be upset that people made fun of his English skills. Despite being accused of a violent act, Goh has been cooperative since his arrest. (via shortformblog)

The gunman who police suspect killed seven people and wounded three at a Christian college in Oakland, California, was upset with the school’s administration and students over what he viewed was unfair treatment while he was enrolled there, the Oakland police chief said Tuesday.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said ABC’s “Good Morning America” that One Goh, 43, has been cooperating with investigators trying to piece together a motive for killings at Oikos University. It was the deadliest shooting rampage on a U.S. college campus since 32 people were killed at Virginia Tech University in April 2007.

“We’ve learned that the suspect was upset with the administration at the school,” Jordan said. “He was also upset that students … in the past when he attended the school, mistreated him, disrespected him and things of that nature.
