James Seevakumaran was originally planning to kill other students before instead choosing to kill himself, police in Orlando said.


A former student at the University of Central Florida was planning to kill students in his dorm before he killed himself, police said.

Thirty-year-old James Seevakumaran changed his mind at the last moment, killing himself with a single gunshot as officers rushed to his building early Monday morning, according to investigators.

Seevakumaran was not enrolled in any classes for this spring semester.

University administrators said they were in the process of evicting him from the dorm.

Meanwhile, UCF students are now pushing for more security and rallying against guns, WESH 2 News in Orlando reported.

"I can't even talk about it," student Adrian Padron told the station. "It hasn't even hit me yet."
