‘just an angry young man’
More from ABC 7 News on the manifesto discovered:
UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland says personal animosities, not a political agenda, motivated 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad from Santa Clara in Wednesday’s multiple stabbings on the school’s campus. Authorities say the stabbing of four people at UC Merced was not related to terrorism.
The Merced County Sheriff’s Office said the coroner was performing an autopsy and found the suspects manifesto on him.
According to the sheriff the suspect intended to shoot people, attack a police office and had a specific target in mind who had kicked him out of a study group. The suspect listed students by name. He had planned to tie students to desks and draw out police to steal a gun and shoot people.
The sheriff said this is not terrorism, just a step above a high school grudge, but the suspect did praise Allah in his writings.
