Online records in the two Virginia localities show that, while Goh was there, he racked up tens of thousands of dollars in liens and judgments, including a $10,377 debt to SunTrust Bank in 2006.

The Internal Revenue Service also issued tax liens against him in 2006 and 2009 totaling more than $23,000, though he apparently paid about $14,000 back in 2008, according to records.

Capital One sued him for $985.96 on an unpaid credit card bill, plus court costs, according to Gloucester County Court records. The court issued a judgment against him on Dec. 9, 2011.

His brother was an Army sergeant stationed in Germany who died in a March 2011 car crash while attending Special Forces selection training in Virginia, according to the military newspaper Stars and Stripes.

The same year, Goh’s mother died in South Korea, where she had moved, her former Oakland neighbors told the San Francisco Chronicle.

It’s unclear how Goh earned a living before he became a nursing student at the tiny private school of about 100 students. But in January, Goh found himself expelled. Oikos officials have not said publicly what led to his expulsion.

According to the school’s disciplinary policy, dismissal can come if a student threatens or harms someone or school property. “Because Oikos functions as a community of believers, students are to demonstrate a respectful attitude in all encounters,” it states.

The school kicked Goh out for unspecified behavioral problems and because he had “anger management” issues, according to Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan.

People at the school “disrespected him, laughed at him,” Jordan said. “They made fun of his lack of English speaking skills. It made him feel isolated compared to the other students.”

Around 10:30 a.m. Monday, after planning the attack for weeks, Goh arrived at the school in an industrial park near Oakland’s airport, police said. Upon entering the building, Goh was intent on finding a female school administrator who wasn’t there, Jordan said.

Goh then accosted the receptionist, marching her to a classroom, he said.

Goh “started ordering people to stand up, started yelling at them,” the police chief said. “They started freaking out. He asked them to line up. Some did, some didn’t, and that’s when he began to shoot.”

By the time police arrived, five of the victims were already dead. Two died later in the day at the hospital.

Goh appeared to have selected his victims at random and none were his alleged tormentors. So far, Goh has not shown any remorse, investigators said,

Those killed in the shooting have been identified as Katleen Ping, 24, of Oakland; Lydia Sim, 21, of Hayward; Bhutia Tshering, 38, of San Francisco; Sonam Choedon, 33, of El Cerrito; Judith Seymore, 53, of San Jose; Kim Eunhea, 23, of Union City; and Doris Chibuko, 40, of San Leandro.
