ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A University of Central Florida spokesman says it appeared that a student who committed suicide there planned an attack on campus.

Spokesman Grant Heston says that materials found in the dorm room made it appear that a wider attack was planned.

Police say he pulled a gun on another student, who then called police.

Heston says the university was in the process of removing the 30-year-old student from the dorm before Monday. Campus Police Chief Richard Beary say four makeshift explosive devices were found in a back pack. Beary says he believes that the dead student pulled a fire alarm in the dorm to get other students out in the open for an attack.

The student was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound with guns and the explosives.
