FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Police say they're working around the clock to find an attacker who stabbed to death a retired administrator at California State University, Fullerton on the first day of the school year.

Police say 57-year-old Steven Shek Keung Chan was stabbed many times before he was found inside his car in the university parking lot Monday.

Police say the attacker targeted Chen and also left a backpack under his car that contained a crude incendiary device and items that could be used in a kidnapping.

There's no word on a motive for the attack.

No students were on campus. Classes don't start until Saturday.

Chan was the school's director of budget and finance and extended education student services. He retired but returned to campus this year as a special consultant.
