A memorial to the victims of the Oikos University shooting began this evening at Oakland’s Allen Temple Baptist Church.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan has described suspect One Goh as upset by the way he was treated at the university.

Of the seven victims killed yesterday, six were women. Police say the victims hail from Korea, Nigeria, Nepal and the Philippines.

Family members of Lydia Sim say the 21-year-old Hayward resident was a nursing student at Oikos, and dreamed of becoming a pediatrician. Grace Kim worked at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewery in Newark. Another victim Katleen Ping Oikos was the University’s secretary who police say was taken hostage by the gunman before he killed her.

Police say Goh shot the one male victim for his vehicle, which Goh then used to leave the scene.
