ROCK PORT, Mo. (AP) - A student accused of taking weapons and more than 100 rounds of ammunition to his northwest Missouri school has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges.

Nineteen-year-old Michael Korth entered the plea Thursday to unlawful use of a weapon and making terrorist threats with reckless disregard.

Korth was arrested last week at Tarkio High School. Prosecutors say he was wearing body armor and military-school clothing when he was stopped. No shots were fired and no one was injured.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports (https://bit.ly/1XBBx0z ) Knoth appeared in a brief court hearing Thursday. A preliminary hearing was set for Feb. 29.

Tarkio Superintendent Patrick Martin attended the hearing and praised the high school staff’s reactions during the incident.
