Conn. Man With Guns on Campus, in Car Is Charged

Source: AP

A Connecticut college student arrested carrying two handguns on campus also had an assault rifle and bullets in his car, and police found 2,700 rounds of ammunition and newspaper clippings of the Colorado theater shooting at his home, authorities said Wednesday.

William Dong, 22, a student at the University of New Haven, was arraigned Wednesday in Milford Superior Court on several charges including illegal possession of an assault weapon. A judge ordered a mental health evaluation and kept his bail at $500,000. Dong remained detained Wednesday evening.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in Tuesday's scare at University of New Haven campus in West Haven, which was locked down for more than four hours as police arrested Dong and searched the school grounds. Several nearby public schools also issued shelter-in-place orders as a precaution.

Police said Wednesday that they weren't sure why Dong brought the guns to campus, and State's Attorney Kevin Lawlor declined to comment on a motive.

5. I was on my way to get some blood work done at a lab not far from the UNH campus and was stopped

by police cruisers and several cops. The whole damn avenue was on lock down. I couldn't believe it when the cop told me "lock down." I thought surely he must be using the term incorrectly...
