The man suspected of killing seven people at a college in Oakland, California had been expelled from the institute following behavioural problems.

Forty-three year old One Goh surrendered at a grocery store several kilometres away from the Oikos University, and is now being held by police, who explained Goh’s motives.

“We know that he came here with the intent of locating an administrator. We do know that he was upset at administrators at the school. We do know that he was upset with several students here because of the way he was treated when he was enrolled here two months ago,” said Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan at a press conference.

What is the deadliest shooting to take place at a US college campus since 32 people were killed at Virginia Tech in April 2007 may have been because Goh was teased by fellow students.

He opened fire in the reception and two classrooms of the Christian college around 10.30 Monday morning local time.

Victims of Goh’s spree came from Korea, Nigeria, Nepal and the Philippines.
