The 18-year-old freshman who stabbed four people on the University of California Merced campus Wednesday was shot dead after he lunged at a police officer with his hunting knife, a fellow student said.
Meghan Christopherson, a 19-year-old sophomore, tells the Fresno Bee that an officer was chasing 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad when he suddenly stopped to face the officer.
She says Mohammad began walking toward the officer. The officer backed up, repeatedly telling Mohammad to get on the ground. She says the officer kept asking Mohammad if he wanted to get shot.
When Mohammad lunged, a frightened Christopherson ran away. She heard two shots and turned to see the officer standing over Mohammad’s body.
She says it all took less than a couple of minutes.
Don’t expect President Obama to offer his condolence to the victims. He most likely will invite Mohammad’s parents to the White House and offer them his sympathy because their piece of dirt son shot dead by the police.
