October 17, 2014

A 20-year-old Pennsylvania State student was jailed Monday after he threatened to stage a campus shooting on social media.

Shim Jong-seong posted a message Saturday night on Yik Yak saying he would use an AR-15 rifle to shoot students at the HUB on the university’s campus.

He was arrested on Sunday on charges of disorderly conduct and making terror threats.

No weapons were found at his off-campus apartment.
