Video: Police raid on UCF dorm room

Early Monday morning, police raided a UCF dorm and discovered the body of former student James Seevakumaran, a 30-year-old business major who was in the process of being evicted from his dorm in Tower 1, as well as a handgun, an assault rifle and IEDs. Police think Seevakumaran was planning a massacre on the campus and even had a to do list that included getting drunk at Mad Hatters bar, then going on a killing spree.

His plan was foiled when his roommate, Arabo Babakhani, called 911.

Officials released a video of the raid on his dorm room. Watch it below, via CBS YouTube channel.
