Oakland college shooting: Victims identified, mourned
The Alameda County coroner's office on Tuesday released the names of six of the seven people killed in a mass shooting at an Oakland college.
Judith O. Seymore, 53, San Jose
Lydia H. Sim, 21, Hayward
Sonam Chodon, 33, El Cerrito
Kim G. Eunhea, 23, Union City
Doris Chibuko, 40, San Leandro
Tshering Butia, 38, San Francisco
According to the coroner, "the seventh victim's identification is being withheld pending notification of the legal next of kin."
Oakland police spokeswoman Johanna Watson said the alleged shooter, One L. Goh, 43, took a student hostage before entering a classroom on campus. She said Goh lined students up against a wall and started shooting.
“He has not shown any signs of remorse,” Watson said Tuesday morning.
Authorities have yet to charge Goh, who is being held in connection with the rampage.
The Associated Press developed profiles of several victims:
She babysat children at Hayward Baptist Church while attending nursing classes at the university. Daniel Sim said his sister was drawn to the school because of its predominant Korean American student body, as well as its faith-based teachings. She was studying for her nursing degree, but her ultimate goal was to attend medical school and become a pediatrician.
Tshering Rinzing Bhutia:
He worked nights as a janitor at San Francisco International Airport and lived alone in the city's North Beach neighborhood. Prem Singh, his landlord at a residential hotel, said Bhutia attended nursing school at Oikos in the morning.
She worked in education administration for Tibet's exiled government before moving to the Bay Area city of El Cerrito from Dharamsala, India, a year and a half ago. Chodon had worked for five years in the Education of Central Tibetan Administration in India.
