Police say an expelled student went on a shooting spree that killed 7 people at a California Christian university on Monday because he was upset with administrators and students who picked on him.
One L. Goh, 43, is in police custody for "systematically and randomly shooting victims" in a "premeditated" killing spree at Oikos University in Oakland, Calif., police chief Howard Jordan said at a press conference, according to KTVU.
Goh, of Oakland, told police that he "came here with the intent of locating an administrator," Jordan said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Goh was expelled from the university about three weeks ago for possible "anger management" issues and was upset with administrators at the school and the way some students treated him, Jordan said at the conference.
"We do know that he was upset with administrators at the school," Jordan said. "We do know he was upset with several students here (at the school) because of the way he was treated when he was enrolled here a few months ago."
On Monday morning, Goh ordered victims in a classroom to line up in a row and shot them as they were begging for their lives, Jordan said, according to the Chronicle.
Among the dead were six women and a man — of which were five students and a university secretary — from several countries, including Korea, Nigeria, Nepal and the Philippines, ranging from the ages of 21 to 40, the Chronicle reported.
Jordan told KTVU that Goh had been planning the killing spree for weeks.
"He has been cooperating… he has not shown any remorse," Jordan told KTVU. "He planned this several weeks in advance. He was so upset he went out and purchased a weapon and had every intent to kill people yesterday."
