Roommate: He 'had a cold, hard stare'

In an exclusive interview, Arabo "BK" Babakhani tells Anderson Cooper what happened when his roommate at the University of Central Florida, James Oliver Seevakumaran, confronted him with a gun before Seevakumaran took his own life.

Babakhani immediately slammed and locked the door and called 911. "I was definitely scared, but calm, I was just taking cover in my room behind objects ... so that if he did fire, he wouldn't be able to hit me" he says.

By the time law enforcement arrived and raided the dorm, the 30 year old was dead.

Cops: UCF student had attack timeline

Throw down some drinks at The Mad Hatter bar in Orlando? Check.

Pull the fire alarm, so about 500 students in Tower 1 on the University of Central Florida campus rush outside, together? Done.

Give them hell?

Those three words were the last item of James Oliver Seevakumaran's checklist that he made before, authorities say, he would go out with up to 1,000 rounds of ammunition and start shooting, possibly setting off bombs in the process.

It was not crossed off.

Instead of a mass killing early Monday morning, police reported only one fatality: Seevakumaran.

Who was shooter's intended target?

Police say the suspected gunman in the shooting rampage at Oikos University was on the hunt for a female administrator at the school.  When One L. Goh, 43, couldn't locate his target, he went after others at the small college.

Oakland, California Police Chief Howard Jordan said, "This was a calculated, cold-blooded execution in the classroom." After shooting a receptionist in front of students, Goh demanded they lineup so he could kill them. The attack left seven dead and three wounded.

Goh allegedly fled the scene in a victim's car as police searched the school. He surrendered to authorities at a supermarket after telling the security guard he needed to speak with police. Police Chief Jordan told CNN's Dan Simon that Goh does not appear remorseful about the killings.
