(Newser) – The University of Central Florida student believed to have plotted a campus massacre was found with a checklist that included getting drunk at a bar near campus and pulling a fire alarm to flush out students, authorities say. The final item on the list was "good luck & give them hell," Fox reports. James Seevakumaran did drink in the bar, police say, but he killed himself instead of carrying out his planned rampage with firearms and explosives, possibly because of the swift police response to his roommate's 911 call. Authorities haven't discovered a motive for the planned attack.
