“He had like a sweatshirt, and the hoodie was up… and it covered his whole face,” student Blanca Ayala said.

The suspect carried a black backpack. He was shot by a campus police officer on Scholars Bridge, which cuts through the middle of campus.

Faisal Mohammad was a freshman on campus.

Mohammad’s dorm was evacuated by a bomb squad after the stabbing.

Mohammad stabbed students in the classroom then ran outside and stabbed a campus employee sitting on a bench.
ABC 6 reported:

The assailant was shot and killed by campus police as he fled the building. He was identified Thursday as Faisal Mohammad of Santa Clara, California, a freshman majoring in computer science and engineering. Authorities were investigating a motive.

Two victims had to be airlifted to nearby hospitals, and two others were treated on campus. The names of the rest of the victims were not released.

Mohammad burst into a second-floor classroom and used an 8- to 10-inch knife to stab two people around the start of an 8 a.m. class, Warnke said.

Price rushed in, distracted the attacker and got stabbed.

“He didn’t go in knowing that there was a stabbing taking place. He went in thinking there was a fight,” Warnke said during a Wednesday news conference.

The attacker then ran out of the room, down two flights of stairs and outside the building, where he stabbed a school employee sitting on a bench, Warnke said. Mohammad was shot and killed by pursuing officers on a nearby foot bridge.
