Police video gave a glimpse into the dorm room of a former Florida college student who was allegedly plotting a deadly attack.

This video released by University of Central Florida police shows officers entering James Seevakumaran's dorm room with guns drawn.

You can hear the fire alarm blaring in the background.

Police say he pulled the alarm early Monday morning in an attempt to get the 5-hundred students in the building to rush outside.

The video shows police entering the man's room and finding the 30-year-old dead on the floor.

Authorities say he killed himself.

Inside the room police found weapons and about a thousand rounds of ammunition as well as four homemade bombs.

Those who knew Seevakumaran tell authorities that he was a loner who didn't like to talk to others but wasn't viewed as a threat.
