Statement From Chancellor Leland on Stabbing Incident

UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland issued the following message to the campus community in the wake of yesterday’s stabbing incident on the UC Merced campus:

We are in the preliminary stages of our inquiry, but based on the evidence gathered so far, including at the crime scene and at the suspect’s campus dormitory room, we have no reason to believe that this was in any way related to terrorism.

At this point, it would be irresponsible to draw such conclusions based solely on the ethnicity of the suspect.
