Details are still emerging on the shooting at Oikos University, a Christian university in Oakland, yesterday that killed seven people and wounded several others.

The suspect is 43-year-old Korean national One Goh. Goh was a nursing student expelled from the small university months before yesterday's attack. The former student had gone to the building to find a female administrator and opened fire when she was not there, going from room to room and killing six students and a secretary, police said Tuesday. Goh reportedly shot the victims execution style — lining them up before opening fire.

This morning, Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan briefed reporters at a news conference, "We do know he was upset with administrators at the school. We do know he was upset with several students here because of the way he was treated when he was enrolled here two months ago," said Jordan.

Joining David to discuss the shooting is reporter Henry Lee — he's been following the story for the San Francisco Chronicle.
