(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- The former student who shot up an Oakland school burst in looking for a female administrator, but he opened fire when he ordered students to line up and they didn't cooperate, police said Tuesday.
One L. Goh, 43, was being cooperative with police about why he killed seven students and wounded three others, but "he has not been particularly remorseful," Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said.
Goh arrived at Oikos University Monday morning asking for a specific administrator, Jordan said. When he found out that she wasn't there, Goh then pushed a secretary into a classroom and asked the students to line-up. When some students refused to comply, Goh began shooting, Jordan said.
Goh, a Korean national, was arrested Monday about an hour after his shooting rampage at Oakland's Oikos University. Five victims died at the scene, while another two died after being taken to a hospital. There is no information on the other three victims.
"We've learned that the suspect was upset with the administration at the school," Jordan said Tuesday on Good Morning America.
"He was also upset that students in the past, when he attended the school, mistreated him, disrespected him, and things of that nature. He was having, we believe, some behavioral problems at the school and was asked to leave several months ago," he continued.
"We've learned that this was a very chaotic, calculated and determined gentleman that came there with a very specific intent to kill people, and that's what his motive was and that's what he carried out," Jordan said.
The victims were six women and one man, ranging from 21 to 40 and originally from Korea, Nigeria and Nepal, according to Jordan.
Goh was deeply in debt with tens of thousands of dollars in federal tax liens against him and had two deaths in his immediate family last year. He had left behind a string of minor traffic citations in his former home state of Virginia and was evicted from one apartment complex in the state, according to ABC News affiliate KGO.
