University of Central Florida Attempted Gunman’s Checklist Ended With “Give ‘Em Hell”

by Colonel on March 19, 2013

“The packages contained even more ammunition for the attack that former UCF student James Oliver Seevakumaran, 30, planned to carry out Monday morning shortly after midnight.

He already had a handgun, assault rifle, high capacity magazines, and four homemade bombs he hoped to use on fellow students after pulling the fire alarm and forcing them into the crowded hallways, according to police.

University Police Chief Richard Beary said today that Seevakumaran had written out a detailed list of the actions he hoped to take Monday night and crossed off the items as he went, including getting drunk at a bar called Mad Hatters and pulling the fire alarm. Police confirmed that he did both.

The last item on the list was “give ‘em hell,” but Seevakumaran killed himself before killing any fellow students, Beary said.
