The Stabber Shot to Dead at the University of California
On Wednesday, an 18 year old freshman at the University of California stabbed four people at the campus. He was shot to death by the police as he attacked a police officer with the knife, stated a fellow student. Faisal Mohammad, the student who stabbed four people was chased by an officer and he suddenly stopped to face the latter. Meghan Christopherson stated that Mohammad started walking towards the officer. Following this, the officer backed up telling him to get onto the ground and asking him if he wanted to get shot.
Despite the warning, Mohammad lunged, and Christopherson ran away. Later, she heard a couple of shots and saw the officer standing over the body of Mohammad. She claimed that the entire incident took place in just two minutes.
As per the investigators, Mohammad burst into one of the classrooms with a knife as he was expelled from a study group. Merced County’s Sheriff, Vern Warnke stated that on autopsy, a manifesto was found on Mohammad’s body. He had listed names of the intended targets in the manifesto. He had planned to tie these students to the desks and draw the police to steal one of the guns and shoot them. His hunting knife’s blade was eight to ten inches long, claimed the authorities.
However, his plan went haywire as people fought back. He got befuddled and finally led to his death. Warnke stressed that the stabbings made on Wednesday were not terrorism, but only a grudge of an angry teenager to take revenge. The four victims stabbed by hum are expected to survive.
