Faisal Mohammad has been identified as the man who stabbed four students at UC Merced. Authorities are still trying to uncover the motives of Faisal, who one victim reported that “had a smile on his face, he was having fun – which is more what bothers me.”
Police report that Faisal used a hunting knife that was 8 to 10 inches in length before he was shot and killed by university police.
Faisal was a freshman and had just turned 18, which conflicts with reports yesterday that he was 20. Faisal’s roommates spoke to reporters today, telling them that he “didn’t talk much and kept to himself” and that added “Every time I would try and say something he would just ignore it.”
