5:36 pm
women who take up extra space with all their bags. police are holding a news conference on the stabbings at uc merced, the suspect was 18- year-old faisal mohammad. here is the conference. >> hi again. sorry to keep dragging you folks back, but we have come up with substantial information. we had information that was recovered during the autopsy of our person. we found a two page handwritten,ly call it a manifesto detailing his projected activities pertaining to the day's events. the reason for these projected activities, i want to make this very clear. he had gotten kicked out of a study group and was upset with one of the students and apparently, took his anger to the extreme level. he, in his note we found today
5:37 pm
on his person during the autopsy, it details from the time of starting in the morning to what he is going to do. he talks about going into the classroom and actually taking the students and handcuffing them with a zip tie. he also talks in his manifesto that he is going to have one of the students help him zip tie. and, further reading, this was not going to be a voluntary act on a student because he quotes, there is is a script. all right, and he says your seven minutes is almost up. get done. and then he is telling the person in quotes, the other student to zip tie his own hands. so, he had a pretty elaborate idea of what he wanted to do. the petroleum jelly, we all know about petroleum jelly. we know its capabilities. however, it looks like his
5:38 pm
intention for the petroleum jelly was to cut a hole in one of the bags and squirt the petroleum jelly on the floor as kind of a slip and slide. he was going to use that to make an entrance problem for anyone who came into the room if they got that far. that is how it read. he's he goes onto say he is going to ambush a police officer. try and get their gun. he further says during his manifesto, he has a couple of students he is upset with apparently because of the prior activity. he talk us about these things. so, he was planned out, the evidence that we have recovered from his backpack was pointed out in his manifesto. what he was going to do with it which was right in line with what we anticipated. i want to make sure, again, i was talking with the fbi this evening. there is still nothing to
5:39 pm
indicate anything, and i mean anything, that this is other than a teenage boy that got upset with fellow classmates. and, took it to the extreme. we have all had that kind of thing happen. so ... having said that ... we have nothing to indicate any other reason and but we do now have a motive and we also have a detailed plan of what he had attempted or thought he was going to do that day. the fortune apart is that we had some intervention with citizens. with students. with construction worker. his plan went haywire because people fought back. and that was his bad luck. the fortunate part, we have some very brave students. we have a very brave construction worker that stopped this from going on. he got so befuddle at the activities that happened, it took his script away from him
5:40 pm
and i think that is what happened. we are very fortunate that the occurrence happened. we are so fortunate that the professional police officers that work for uc merced were on the job. when the chief was working earlier, this thing from start to finish was probably less than two minutes. what a wonderful testament to the professionalism and the capabilities of the police department out there. they had this in control. neutralized before the first outside unit got on the scene. >> and you have been listening to a press conference there from the sheriff from merced county detailing what they have learned about the suspect following the stabbings yesterday on the campus of uc merced where the suspect, 18- year-old faisal mohammad, a student there, was shot and killed after stabbing four people on that campus. we learned now just from the sheriff they found a two-page handwritten manifesto that was found on the suspect.
5:41 pm
basically detailing the plans, the intentions of that young man. he is apparently ... was apparently angry after getting kicked out a study group and went there with a long list of things he planned on using. zip tied, bags, and petroleum jelly. >> he wanted to spread the jelly on the floor so people would slip and no one could come in the classroom. he also wanted to ambush a police officer and take his gun. the sheriff said this was essentially a teenage boy who got upset and then took it to extremes. but, i also want to point out, what the sheriff was talking about. it was a construction worker who heard what was going on, ran into the room and stopped everything in its tracks. the last thing he was expecting was for someone to fight back. here came this worker. though this guy had a knife, he got involved and got injured in the process, but, that construction worker, he didn't think about it. he just reacted. and in my mind, he is a real
5:42 pm
hero for what he did. >> and so much revealed from that handwritten note. the four people who were stabbed are expected to recover. this happened yesterday on the campus of uc merced. we have much more coming up here. new security on the campaign trail. see the security official to keep donald trump and ben carson safe. >> and the changes that a bay area boys and girls club is making after a generous donation. with a 100% electric nissan leaf...
