(AP) - A college freshman angered over his eviction from a study group planned to kill a police officer, steal a gun and shoot those who had evicted him, according to a document found on his body after police shot him dead.

The Merced County Sheriff's Department said 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad wrote a two-page plan of revenge on those who had kicked him out of the study group. Police shot Mohammad dead on Wednesday after he stabbed four people on the University of California, Merced campus.

The document was found during Mohammad's autopsy Thursday.

Mohammad planned to use plastic ties to bind students' hands to their desks in his Wednesday morning class and then call police with a fake distress call. He then planned to ambush the responding officers and take their guns.

Instead, his attack on the class was foiled almost from the start. The four people he stabbed are expected to survive their injuries.
