[Ed. – Another potential nightmare averted.]
A foreign exchange student is accused of building an arsenal ahead of a planned attack at his Delaware County [Pa.] high school.
Authorities say they uncovered weapons, ammunition, and military-style tactical gear at the home of the suspect’s host family.
An Tso Sun, an 18-year-old student from Taiwan, moved to the U.S. last August to attend Bonner and Prendergast Catholic High School in Drexel Hill.
Police say he told a friend that he was planning to shoot up the school. He’s now been charged with making a terroristic threat.
“One of my teachers saw him getting walked out in handcuffs,” said senior Brian Dunphy.
Dunphy shared math class with Sun during first period, but he said it was Halloween when he noticed his behavior.
“He wore, like, a full military costume. It looked pretty legit,” said Brian. “He did have a fascination with guns. People overheard him talking about guns. I guess the right person told and that’s why they took action.”
