America's been shocked by yet another Angry Asian Man shooter who happens to be a Korean American at tiny Oikos University in Oakland. The entire school, which was founded by a Korean to teach nursing and Christian studies only served about 100 students Of the 35 who were in the building that day, 7 or 1 of 5 was killed. While the college was aimed at the Korean community, victims included international students from Nigeria, Nepal and the Phillipines.
It's deadliest outburst of gun violence at a US school since the Virginia Tech massacre in which Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people in 2007, who was another loner who complained of mistreatment from his classmates. Other Koreans who made the news was James Jay Lee who used pistols and an explosive device to take hostage at the Discovery Channel headquarters (See Angry Asian Man Strikes Again)
This is what I wrote then about what looks like a disturbing pattern of Asian men, particularly Koreans "gunning" for the #2 spot in most over-represented mass shooters after the most obviously visible Islamist Palestinians and Arabs. I think every ethnic / religious group should be worried when members of their group commit atrocities rather than being apologists:

The Oikos University shooting occurred on April 2, 2012, when a gunman shot at people inside Oikos University, a Christian college inOakland, California, United States. Within a few hours, the number of reported fatalities reached seven. 43-year-old One L. Goh, a former student at the school, was taken into custody and identified as the suspect in the shootings. Along with the California State University, Fullerton massacre, this is the third-deadliest university shooting in United States history, after the Virginia Tech massacre and the University of Texas Clock Tower shooting and the deadliest outburst of gun violence at a US school since the Virginia Tech massacre in which Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people in 2007.
The shooting happened at approximately 10:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, April 2, 2012, when a gunman opened fire on the university's campus, located at an industrial park area in East Oakland. The suspected gunman, 43-year-old One L. Goh, stood up in a nursing classroom while class was in session, ordered classmates to line up against the wall, and fired at them. The gunman was reported to have said "Get in line ... I'm going to kill you all" before opening fire, according to a witness. Seven were reported dead, and three others injured. The attacker continued to fire shots as he fled the campus and hours later was apprehended by authorities at a Safeway supermarket in nearby Alameda, about five miles away from the scene of the shooting.

The suspected shooter is 43-year-old One L. Goh (sometimes reported as One Goh Ko), a former student at Oikos University. He was residing in Oakland at the time of the attack. A native of South Korea, he followed his parents and two older brothers to the U.S. at a young age and later naturalized as a U.S. citizen. When Goh arrived to the United States, he first resided in Springfield, a community in Fairfax County, Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C., and then moved to Hayes, where he had minor traffic citations and debts. He then moved from Virginia to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he took up residence in Castro Valley and in Oakland. While a student at Oikos University, he had disciplinary problems, and was asked to leave the school a few months prior to the shooting. Howard Jordan, the chief of the Oakland Police Department, said the suspect was angry at the administration after being expelled from the university earlier in the year. More than a year earlier, on 8 March 2011, Goh's brother (Sgt. Su Wan Ko, an administrative non-commissioned officer) was killed in an automobile accident in Virginia while on assignment for the George C. Marshall Center.
Seven people were killed and three were injured.
