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.
"I'm going to kill people tomorrow, including myself," student Alexander Song wrote in the online conversations. "I do need help, but I'm going to go on a rampage and kill people before I get that help."
"I feel much better than I did when I was in the hospital," said Mr. Song, addressing District Court Judge Patrice E. Lewis.
