The man suspected of shooting 10 people at Oikos University in Oakland on Monday will be arraigned today on seven counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder, according to prosecutors.
One L. Goh, a 43-year-old Korean national who lived in Oakland, hasn’t yet been formally charged, but is scheduled to appear in court at the Wiley Manuel Courthouse in Oakland at 2 p.m. today.
Alameda County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Teresa Drenick said charges were expected to be filed against Goh late this morning or early this afternoon.
Drenick said Goh likely will also face a special-circumstance allegation of committing multiple murders, which could make him eligible for the death penalty.
Prosecutors are also considering charging Goh with kidnapping and carjacking, which were among the crimes for which he was arrested. Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said Goh “commandeered” the car of one of the victims when he left the university after the shooting.
The shooting was reported at 10:33 a.m. at the campus, located at 7850 Edgewater Drive, near Oakland International Airport.
Goh surrendered to Alameda police at a Safeway store at 2227 South Shore Center in Alameda at about 11:15 a.m.
On Tuesday, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office released the names of six of the seven people killed.
Four of the victims were East Bay residents, identified as Lydia Sim, 21, of Hayward; Sonam Choedon, 33, of El Cerrito; Kim G. Eunhea, 23, of Union City; and Doris Chibuko, 40, of San Leandro.
The other two victims were identified as San Jose resident Judith Seymore, 53, and San Francisco resident Bhutia Tshering, 38.
Authorities are withholding the name of the seventh victim until that person’s family has been notified.
Three other people were wounded in the shooting.
Goh is being held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin without bail.
