The man accused of killing seven people and wounding three others in a shooting rampage at Oakland’s Oikos University in early April pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and other charges in Alameda County Superior Court on Monday afternoon.
One Goh, 43, entered his not-guilty pleas at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse in Oakland at a 2 p.m. hearing.
Goh, a Korean national who lives in Oakland, is being held in custody without bail and has been charged with seven counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and 10 special-circumstance allegations, including committing murder during a carjacking. Police said Goh fled the campus after the April 2 shootings in a car belonging to one of the victims.
He was arrested in Alameda a short time later after he confessed to a Safeway security guard that he had just shot several people, according to police.
Goh is a former Oikos student who had left the school voluntarily. Prosecutors have said he appears to have wanted a refund of his tuition, and may have been targeting an administrator who was not present the day of the shooting.
Goh will return to court June 25 for a pretrial hearing. — Bay City News
