OAKLAND -- The 44-year-old man accused of killing seven people during a mass shooting at a small East Oakland private college remains troubled by delusional thoughts and cannot comprehend the charges filed against him, attorneys said in court Monday.

One Goh remains at Napa State Hospital where he is undergoing counseling and voluntarily taking perphenazine, an antipsychotic drug used to treat psychosis, Goh's attorney Assistant Public Defender David Klaus said.

Goh will remain at Napa State Hospital until doctors determine he is mentally fit to stand trial. A new progress report on his mental status will be presented to the court in December.

Goh could face the death penalty for the alleged mass shooting last year in which he is accused if using a .45-caliber handgun to kill six Oikos University students and a receptionist because the school refused to refund his tuition.

The shooting occurred on April 2, 2012, when Goh walked into the school on Edgewater Drive and began shooting.
