Someone tell the MSM it wasn’t the Amish after all… and now the University is trying to figure out what his motive could possibly be – go figure.
CALIFORNIA – A student who ‘smiled’ as he stabbed four people inside a classroom at the University of California, Merced, before he was killed by police has been identified.
Faisal Mohammad, a freshman from Santa Clara who majored in computer science and engineering, was shot dead by officers after his violent campus rampage on Wednesday morning, that has reportedly drawn praise from ISIS.
The 18-year-old, described as antisocial by his roommate, was supposedly ‘having fun’ as he lunged at his classmates.
He is said to have slashed a fellow student in the throat with a hunting knife before a construction worker thwarted the attack.
Police are still investigating the contents of a backpack he was carrying at the time, while a witness said a bomb squad detonated something near the scene.
The attack drew praise Thursday from a Twitter account associated with the Islamic State,Fox News reported.
‘May Allah accept him,’ read a tweet in Arabic from a Twitter account that has previously carried messages purporting to be from ISIS, just minutes after Mohammad’s name was divulged by campus authorities.
Last week the same account released a series of videos calling for lone wolf stabbing attacks.
There has also been a recent spate of mass knife attacks in Israel, where Palestinian Muslims have been encourage to stab civilians. However it is not clear if Wednesday’s attack is connected in any way.
