Police continue probe of college shooting

Police said Thursday they were investigating the possibility that a gunman who killed seven people at a tiny private Christian college was seeking multiple intended targets in his rampage.

A day earlier, police said the apparent target had been the director of the nursing program at Oikos University.

However, Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said late Wednesday that the gunman had been seeking another female administrator, not the director of the nursing program.

Officer Johnna Watson, a police spokeswoman, would not identify the other administrator but said she no longer works at the school. She did not clarify whether the nursing director could be among the group. "We're still looking [to see] if there were any other intended victims as well. That's part of our ongoing investigation," Watson said Thursday. "We're keeping the investigation open for the possibility the suspect [may have been] intending to harm any other administrators."

One Goh, 43, has been charged with seven counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder, plus an allegation of committing multiple murders that could make him eligible for the death penalty.
