Police: Calif.campus shooter’s target was a female administrator, shot fellow students execution-style

Disturbing new details were revealed this morning in the shooting rampage at Oikos University yesterday in Oakland, Calif.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan explains the investigation to Ashleigh Banfield on "Early Start" this morning, saying the shooter has been talking with police overnight and has provided more information on what happened. The suspect, 43-year-old One Goh, opened fire at the small religious college allegedly because he was upset at the school for dismissing him.

Jordan explains the shooter walked into the school's single-story building on Monday, took a receptionist hostage and went looking for a particular female administrator. Goh wanted to exact revenge on a particular female administrator and inflict harm on the school. The victims were random, and they were unable to resist him because it all happened so quickly.Jordan declined to say the name of the administrator, or if she was on site when the shooting occurred.

Jordan said Goh lined up all his victims in a classroom and began shooting them one by one, then left for a short period of time, came back went through other parts of the school just shooting. "He casually walked out and left in one of the victim's vehicles," Jordan added. He also explained that there was a point where Goh had a chance to reload and fire multiple rounds.

"He came back into the classroom after he left, went to another location, and began shooting again because he realized that there were other students hiding in the adjacent classroom," Jordan explains. "He began shooting into that classroom again. Then left out the back, not through the same entrance that he came in." He added that though they have not located the weapon, they have enough ballistics evidence to determine it was a semi-automatic handgun.

Charges are expected to be filed Wednesday. See the full interview below.

    School dismisses me. This is America. I have easy access to guns. I will shoot everyone. Unfortunately, this is the reality in this country. Stuff like this don't happen often in Canada. Gun control laws needed.

    As we sat and watched the unfolding tragedy at Chardon High School in Ohio, we lit three candles on our altar and began to pray. For the victims, the families and the students and staff– and even the shooter. Our stomachs turned and we sat on edge watching dramatic revelation after revelation on CNN and other news outlets reporting on the victims, their critical condition, the shooter and how he was captured and the uproar felt in that Ohio community. Even from Texas, we feel their pain and loss and continue to pray for the families of the victims of the shooting, the school, parents and community.

    But let's look at the laws of justice and mercy in this case. Ask yourself these questions and answer honestly: Had the origin and nationality of the shooter been, say, African-American or another obvious non-White race, do you think that the shooter would have been captured alive? Do you think that the mostly-white police department would have allowed him to be captured alive (or at least not tortured)? Do you actually believe that racism is not alive and well in America?

    Had this man been a minority, I highly doubt that he would ever see his "day in court." I believe that he would have been the victim of violence.

    It is our hope and prayer that God serves his gracy and mercy on this case and we KNOW that his judgment is fair and that it will have nothing to do with racial discrimination.
