Oikos University Mass Shooting Suspect Gets 7 Life Sentences

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The man accused of killing seven people in the 2012 shooting rampage at Oikos University has been sentenced to seven life sentences in prison without parole on Friday, according to authorities.

One Goh, 48, was charged with seven counts of first degree murder, three counts of premeditated attempted murder and the special circumstance allegations of committing a murder during a kidnapping and committing multiple murders for the shooting at Oikos, a Christian vocational school located near Oakland International Airport, on April 2, 2012.

Goh pleaded no contest to the charges in May.

Goh’s attorney, Assistant Public Defender David Klaus, said a key factor in making the pleas was that the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office decided not to seek the death penalty.
