Before a murder-suicide rampage that left four dead and three wounded last week, gunman Ali Syed failed most of his classes at Saddleback College, according to the school's Lariat student newspaper.
In the fall of 2010, his first semester at the campus, he flunked all three of his classes: introductory courses in economics, world history and geography.
From there, Syed took eight classes. He failed six of them, leaving him with a cumulative GPA of 0.62, an F average.

In spring 2011, he retook world history and passed with a B grade. He took economics twice more before passing with a C in spring 2012. Those were his only grades higher than an F, according to the school paper.
Most of Syed's classes were in history and geography, but he took two psychology classes too.
