One Goh also had a mountain of financial problems when he lived in Virginia, prior to moving to the Bay Area. He was heavily in debt to banks and apartments, and had tens of thousands of dollars in liens, one from the IRS. At one time, he owed more than $2,300 in taxes.”
Oakland Police confirmed that they’re searching for a semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting and One Goh may have thrown the gun into water off of Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline in Oakland, California. Dive teams are searching the water for a weapon.
