CA college holds memorial for 7 shooting victims
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - April 10, 2012 (WPVI) -- The founder of an Oakland college where a gunman went on a deadly shooting rampage says the school's been encouraged by an outpouring of support from around the world.
Dr. Jongjin Kim spoke Tuesday at a memorial service held outside Oikos University. About 100 people huddled under tents set up on the rainy morning.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Congresswoman Barbara Lee were among those in attendance for the 40-minute ceremony to remember the seven people killed on April 2.
Police have said suspect One Goh was targeting an administrator who had been involved in his financial dispute with the school. When he found out she wasn't there, they say, he began shooting in classrooms.
On Tuesday, Oikos officials also announced the creation of a fund to support victims and their families.
