(CBS/AP) - The former student who allegedly planned an attack at the University of Central Florida reportedly had alcohol in his system at the time he committed suicide.

An autopsy report for James Seevakumaran released Friday shows the 30-year-old was intoxicated at the time of his death. No illegal drugs were detected.

Seevakumaran's body was found along with two guns and explosives, which officials say they believe was part of a "planned attack on the UCF campus," CBS affiliate WKMG reported at the time.

Seevakumaran had allegedly created a timeline of how he planned to kill people, but the plan was thwarted when authorities responded to a fire alarm call quicker than he expected and his roommate called 911.

Seevakumaran was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
