For the first time since a man allegedly shot and killed seven people at a Christian college in Oakland, One Goh finally broke his silence.

The 43-year-old native of South Korea and former student at Oikos University, has been charged with seven counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

He has not yet entered a plea.

But Wednesday Goh spoke with KPIX reporter Juliette Goodrich from Santa Rita Jail, marking the first time he has addressed the public since the shootings on April 2.

While the interview was not recorded, Goodrich reported that Goh said he was sorry for what he did.

"Families are so angry with me,” he said. "(But) if I tell them sorry, it doesn’t bring anybody back."

Goh said his lawyer advised him not to get into the specifics of what happened at the school.

"I have a lawyer, and I have told him everything," Goh said. "He advised me not to talk, but I am sorry."

Goh did not reveal a motive behind the shooting. Instead he said he was at the school studying to become a nurse but that did not work because it was "complicated."

The Oakland resident is accused of shooting 10 people and killing seven of them.
