Danville Woman Believed to be Targeted by Oikos Shooter

One Goh, the Oikos University shooter accused of killing seven in Oakland this week, told Oakland police he was searching for Danville resident Wonja Kim, a former administrator at the school.

One Goh, the 43-year-old man accused of killing seven in a shooting at Oikos University in Oakland on Monday, entered the school looking for an administrator that had worked there while Goh attended, according to reports.

That administration, Wonja Kim, is a Danville resident, but had left the school shortly after Goh dropped out of Oikos, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

San Francisco Chronicle, April 6:

Authorities said that before leaving as assistant director of the program, she had been working part time at the Christian school doing both teaching and some administrative tasks - and had been dealing with Goh in a tuition refund dispute after he left the school in November.

Chronicle reported that Kim couldn't be reached but Oakland investigators had interviewed her.

Goh was of murder and other charges that could make him eligible for the death penalty for a shooting rampage.

Goh is a Korean national who lived in Oakland, has admitted to police that he carried out a shooting at the Christian vocational school that left seven people dead and three people injured, according to a probable cause statement filed in court by Oakland police Officer Robert Trevino.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said four of the shooting victims were East Bay residents: , 21, of Hayward; Sonam Choedon, 33, of El Cerrito; , 23, of Union City; and Doris Chibuko, 40, of San Leandro.

Two other victims were identified as San Jose resident Judith Seymour, 53, and San Francisco resident Tshering Rinzing Bhutia, 38.

The seventh victim was identified in the complaint as Katleen Ping, 24, of Oakland.

Three other people were wounded in the shooting. O'Malley identified them as Dawinder Kaur, 19, Ahmad Javid Sayeed, 36, and Grace Kirika, 43.
