OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The founder of the California Christian university where a gunman shot and killed seven people this week says the former nursing student returned to campus because of a tuition dispute but had not previously shown any signs of violence.

Jongjin Kim told The Associated Press that One Goh became upset when administrators refused to grant him a full tuition refund after he dropped out of the nursing program last fall.

Kim says Goh came to campus Monday morning looking for the person in charge of handling tuition.

But before then, Kim says Goh hadn't exhibited violent tendencies, as far as he knew, and seemed "normal."

Kim believes Goh shot his victims at random on Monday.

Police say Goh may have been seeking multiple targets before beginning his rampage, killing six students and a school secretary while wounding three others.
