A judge in Oakland, California has ruled that the suspect in last year's deadly shooting rampage at a small religious college is mentally unfit to stand trial.

The judge agreed Monday with two doctors who say alleged gunman One Goh suffers from paranoid schizophrenia — an illness in which victims hear voices and loses touch with reality.

The judge scheduled another court appearance to decide which hospital should treat him.

Goh could still be tried if he is later found to be mentally competent.

Goh allegedly killed seven people and wounded three others last April at Oikos University — a small Christian college with a mainly Korean-American student body.

Goh was a former nursing student at the school. Police say that Goh targeted a school official who expelled him and other students who allegedly ridiculed his English language skills.
