Two men arrested after threatening to go on shooting sprees last year in Prince George's County faced misdemeanor charges that were far less severe than the nature of the threats made, according to prosecutors supporting legislation that would make it a felony to issue threats of mass violence in Maryland.
The University of Maryland student accused of threatening to go on a shooting rampage at the College Park campus, was deemed competent to stand trial Tuesday in Prince George's County's Mental Health Court.
A student at the University of Maryland, College Park who in March was hospitalized after campus police said he threatened in online messages to go on a shooting rampage is now facing additional charges from the incident.
Authorities say a student's threat to go on a "shooting rampage" at the University of Maryland College Park was credible, although searches of the student's dorm room and his family's home have not turned up any weapons.
In messages posted on the social media websites Reddit.com and Omegle.com that were forwarded, police said Mr. Song warned people to avoid McKeldin Mall, an expansive courtyard on campus, and said he hoped he could "kill enough people to make it to national news."
"He basically said, 'I'm thinking about killing people on campus at the University of Maryland.'
