Calif. shooting suspect changed his name in 2002Calif. school shooting suspect changed name because his birth name sounded 'like a girl'
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' The suspect charged in the nation's largest school shooting since Virginia Tech changed his name a decade ago because he felt his birth name sounded like a girl's name.
One Goh faces murder and attempted murder charges for a shooting rampage at Oakland's Oikos University on Monday.
The 43-year-old South Korea native was born with the name Su Nam Ko. But in February 2002, he filed a petition with the Circuit Court in Fairfax County, Va., to change his name to One L. Goh.
The reason he listed was that he did "not like my current name because it sounds like a girl's name."
Seven people died and three were wounded in the shooting. Authorities say he may have been motivated by a financial dispute with the small Christian college.
