California: Muslim stabs 4 on UC Merced campus before shot dead

Muslims of the Islamic State praised the attack and had recently called for Muslim lone wolves to attack. Yet, predictably, the school and the sheriff are defending Islam and making up their own motivations.

Faisal Mohammad, a freshman who majored in computer science and engineering at the University of California was carrying highly flammable petroleum jelly, ziptie handcuffs, night vision goggles, duct tape and a hammer in his backpack when he was shot in the back by cops.

In reference to the petroleum jelly, Sheriff Vern Warnke said: ‘He had poor man’s C4’ – C4 being the dense, putty-like explosive compound used widely by the military and demolition teams.

‘He had far greater intentions to do damage’

Moments before he had ‘smiled’ as he used a 10-inch hunting knife to stab two students, a campus construction worker and a female teacher in a terrifying attack that was praised by an Isis-linked Twitter account.

The 18-year-old, described as anti-social by his roommate, was supposedly ‘having fun’ as he slashed the first student in the throat inside a classroom.

Overhearing the commotion, construction worker Byron Price, 31, intervened and was stabbed in his left side by Mohammad as he tried to stop the attack.

‘He (Mohammad) had a smile on his face, he was having fun – which is more what bothers me,’ Price told CBSFresno.

Sheriff Vern Warnke said that Price’s entrance into the classroom likely prevented the death of the first victim who was attacked.

‘I just kind of kicked at him,’ Price added. ‘It was a really big knife and he was swinging it down so I figured if I was on the ground and my feet were at him, he could get my legs and not my body. And it.

He also revealed that he drove himself to hospital despite his injuries and received nine staples. He is now at home with his children and fiancée.

After being disturbed by Price, Mohammad is understood to have fled down two flights of stairs and outside, where he stabbed a female student and a female staff member.

The suspect was then shot and killed by police about 35 or 40 yards away from the classroom.

The attack drew praise Thursday from a Twitter account associated with the Islamic State, Fox News reported.

‘May Allah accept him,’ read the tweet in Arabic 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.

However, the college moved to rule out a political motive on Wednesday.

UC Merced Chancellor Dorthy Leland said: ‘At this point, it would be irresponsible to draw such conclusions based solely on the ethnicity of the suspect.

‘At this point in time, the preliminary evidence suggests that freshman computer science and engineering student Faisal Mohammad of Santa Clara appears to have been motivated by personal animosities, not a political agenda.’

Sheriff Vern Warnke added that it was an ‘act of an individual for a vendetta… nothing to indicate there was any political or religious motivation.’

Kristen Halliday, a UC Merced freshman, told the station that she and a group of friends were trapped in their dorm room above the scene and saw the bomb squad arrive.

‘They did detonate something. We heard the sirens and then they said: “Fire in the hole”, and then it detonated.’

First-year student Lensy Maravilla, 19, told Fox News she was in a biology class when a female student ran in.

Maravilla said the student ‘was crying hysterically and came in and said that she had seen somebody get stabbed, or slashed, in the throat and she ran.’

During a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Sheriff-Coroner Vern Warnke said that the weapon used in the stabbings was a hunting knife between 8 and 10 inches long.

The university said that two students, one staff member and a vendor were wounded but were expected to recover. Two of the victims were airlifted to specific hospitals for treatment.

As of Thursday morning, one student remains hospitalized but officials believe they will be fine. One other student was treated and released.

The staff member who suffered a collapsed lung was recovering Thursday after successful surgery.

The university’s chancellor Dorothy Leland said the stabbings were a troubling act of violence that had left the rural campus shaken.

She said she is thankful that wounds suffered by the victims do not appear to be life-threatening.

He planned to use the guns to shoot a list of students he named in his “manifesto,” including those in his study group.

“He had delusions of grandeur,” the sheriff said. “I don’t think he had any actual capability to carry it out.”

Warnke said Mohammad’s plan was written in English and referenced the Muslim god Allah several times. But Warnke said the student was motivated by personal animosities and the attacks had nothing to do with religion or terrorism.

“We had a teenager who was upset he was kicked out of a study group,” Warnke said. “We had a teenager who didn’t know how to channel his anger.”

The sheriff said Mohammad was born in the United States. He said investigators didn’t find any evidence of mental illness.

It seems the sheriff is going well beyond his capacity and is speculating rather than evaluating facts. It’s pandemic.

  1. University officials should call it what it is…..a terrorist attack.
    We, the tax payers of California are a bit tired of the pussy footing of UC officials always protecting the criminals, whether they are using a gun, a knife, a baseball bat. Call it like it is. Some are mentally ill as in the UCSB killing but this guy is from a big Islamic group in Santa Clara. The mosque should be demolished just like they are doing in Egypt……they are hotbeds of terrorism not places of worship.

  2. NAAWP is treating this as an ANTI-AMERICAN HATE CRIME driven by the ISIS TERRORIST GROUP!

  3. The pressure on news outlets to be PC comes from CAIR. The editors at the SacBee defended the stabber, rejects blaming his “ethnicity.” (Being a Muslim does not point to a person’s ethnicity.) Yet, the sheriff says, above, “Mohammad’s plan was written in English and referenced the Muslim god Allah several times.”

    “The ‘terrorism’ at UC Merced.” “Social media jumps to conclusions about teenager with Muslim name.”

    • From the editorial board no less…notice how they claim because the sheriff declared it wasn’t religiously motivated or terror (after less than 24 hours – how could any motivation be ruled out?) that it absolutely cannot be. Then they want to blame it on mental although the same sheriff clearly state there WERE NO SIGNS OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

      One has to wonder a) who is on the Sac Bee editorial board and b) did the terror-linked Muslims at CAIR write that for them…many other questions should be asked too.

      Do they defend all killers? Or just Muslim killers?

  4. Lord, if only someone had a firearm these people could have gone unhurt. Please give the people that think CCW are bad to look into their hearts and understand that firearms are merely a tool and in the right, trained hands can save lives.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
