University of California Merced mass stabber Faisal Mohammad left behind a manifesto that referenced Allan numerous times and revealed plans to “cut someone’s head off.”
But Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke assured students and members of the UC Merced community that Mohammad was not motivated by “terrorism” or “religion.”
According to Fox News, Mohammad had a two-page manifesto in one of his pockets when police shot and killed him Wednesday. The manifesto contained “a numeric list outlining his plans of who he wanted to kill, and how, including beheading and shooting his victims.”
Breitbart News previously reported that part of Mohammad’s plan was to zip-tie his fellow students to their desks, then call police and ambush them once they reached the classroom. Mohammad wanted to take guns from the police, then use those guns to shoot a specific list of fellow students, including students who had barred him from being part of a study group.
Fox News reports that Mohammad had an “8-inch hunting knife”with him when he entered the classroom Wednesday at 8 a.m. Based on the manifesto, law enforcement says there is no reason to think his stabbing spree would have ended as quickly as it did were it not for the resistance he faced from construction worker Byron Price and, finally, from the campus police who shot him dead.
After reading Mohammad’s manifesto Sheriff Warnke observed:
There was a gruesome statement he made about wanting to cut someone’s head off and kill two people with one bullet, and he planned to shoot the police. He did not have a firearm with him and didn’t seem to have a lot of experience with firearms because he thought he could kill two people with one bullet. He reminded himself in the list to raise the gun slowly. He scripted everything out in chronological order.
Warnke added, “I remember seeing four or five times, scribbled on the side of the two-page manifesto, where he wrote something like ‘praise Allah.'” But Warnke was quick to point out that Mohammad’s mass stabbing was not motivated by “terrorism” or “religion.”
It is interesting to note that witnesses to the classroom stabbing scene said Mohammad had a smile on his face as he tried to carry out his gruesome intentions.
