The disturbed freshman who stabbed four people at a California college and had plans to zip-tie his classmates and behead one of them was reportedly carrying around an ISIS flag during his stabbing spree.
Investigators found a printout of the terrorist group’s signature black flag among 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad’s belongings, a law enforcement source told theMerced Sun Star on Tuesday.
It was discovered along with the teen’s two-page radical manifesto that detailed his revenge attack for being kicked out of a study group at the University of California, Merced.
The troubled computer science and engineering major who was shot dead by campus cops had no connections to organized hate or terror groups, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said, citing background checks with help from the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.
The teen made vague references to Allah in his manifesto that outlined his chilling plot to hold classmates hostage, ambush an officer for his firearm and gun down his named targets, including those in the study group.
