Suspect Killed After Stabbing Spree at California College Campus

November 05, 2015  | 

An 18-year-old University of California at Merced student smiled as he slashed at people during a stabbing spree that wounded four people on the campus Wednesday, according to a Merced man who is being called a hero for attempting to stop the attack, reports the Merced Sun-Star.

The student, identified as freshman Faisal Mohammad of Santa Clara, "looked scared," Byron Price, a 31-year-old construction worker, told the Sun-Star on Thursday.

"He also looked like he was having fun," Price said. "His eyes, I could see fear in his eyes. He was smiling."

Price was one of four people wounded by Mohammad before the first-year computer science and engineering major was chased down by UC Merced police officers and fatally shot.

Merced County Sheriff Verne Warnke said investigators, including the FBI, were still trying to determine the motive for Mohammad's attack, which wounded two students and a female student advisor in addition to Price. The four suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
