Man Charged with Gun Crimes After Connecticut Lockdown

HandcuffsWEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police say they found newspaper clippings about mass shootings at the home of a University of New Haven student arrested near campus carrying two handguns and having an assault rifle in his car.

No shots were fired and no one was injured.

West Haven police announced Wednesday that 22-year-old William Dong was charged with illegal possession of an assault weapon and other crimes after Tuesday’s scare, which led to a campus lockdown of more than four hours.

Dong is detained on $500,000 bail and faces arraignment on Wednesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Police say Dong had an assault rifle in his Toyota and the newspaper clippings at his Fairfield home. Authorities say he has permits for the handguns.
