Police say the gunman who shot and killed seven at a California college was targeting a female administrator.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said at a news conference that the suspect, 43-year-old One L. Goh, shot randomly after learning the woman was not there.

Jordan said Goh went to the campus with "the intent of locating an administrator. He then went through the entire building systematically and randomly shooting people."

"We've learned that the suspect was upset with the administration at the school. He was also upset that students in the past, when he attended the school, mistreated him, disrespected him, and things of that nature," Jordan said this morning on "Good Morning America."

"He was having, we believe, some behavioral problems at the school and was asked to leave several months ago.

"We've learned that this was a very chaotic, calculated and determined gentleman that came there with a very specific intent to kill people, and that's what his motive was and that's what he carried out," the chief said.

ABC News reported that Goh had a string of debts and some minor traffic citations in Virginia, his home state. He was evicted from one apartment complex, station KGO in the Bay Area reported.

Goh fled the campus after the shooting and, according to police, he apparently drove about three miles from campus before surrendering inside a supermarket.

He was described as a former nursing student who was also a South Korean national.
