OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Families of the people killed in a shooting rampage at a small Oakland university last year are remembering their lost loved ones as the one-year anniversary of the massacre approaches.

Seven people were killed in the shooting at Oikos University on April 2, 2012 when authorities say One Goh opened fire.

Investigators say Goh — a former Oikos student — had planned the shooting after becoming angry with school officials over a tuition dispute. He had previously decided to drop out of the school’s nursing program.

Goh has pleaded not guilty to the killings. He is confined to a psychiatric hospital after a judge in January found him incompetent to stand trial.

In April, Oikos will host two memorial concerts — one in Oakland next Saturday and a second in El Dorado Hills on April 13 — to remember the victims.
