Another black mark for Oakland

Before Monday, it would have been hard to imagine that violent crime -- driven by a steady stream of street shootings -- could have gotten any worse in Oakland.

Just a few days earlier, the city registered its 27th homicide. A 36-year-old man named Tyrone Braswell was gunned down in East Oakland. We were on track to match or surpass our triple-digit 2011 body count.

But then on Monday, the unfathomable happened.

According to police, a 43-year-old former nursing student named One Goh walked into a classroom at his old school and fatally shot seven people. He wounded three others.

In a flash, Oakland's homicide total had surged to 34 dead. [snip] Police Chief Howard Jordan, who held a news conference late Monday, offered no motive for the shootings and said victims would not be identified for several days.

According to a witness account, One was a nursing student who hadn't been in class for months.

But on Monday, he suddenly reappeared shortly after 10 a.m. He went to a nursing class he had previously attended and ordered his former classmates against a wall. Then he flashed a gun.

When students tried to run, the gunman started shooting.

“Nursing “would have been the perfect job for him,”

The things people say boggles the mind.
