Faisal Mohammad has been identified as the student who stabbed five people on the U.C. Merced campus in California on Wednesday.

Mohammed was later shot by police. He died of his wounds. 

Mohammad was a first year student.

His roomate Andrew Velasquez told ABC that Mohammed mostly kept to himself. 

“Every time I would try and say something he would just ignore it,” Velasquez said. 

Investigators believe Mohammed started stabbing people early Wednesday when he entered a second-floor classroom and struggled with a male student, reported the Merced Sun Star.

Five people in all were wounded but all are recovering.
