(AP) COLUMBUS, Ohio - A Kent State University student accused of posting a message on Twitter saying he planned to "shoot up" the northeastern Ohio campus has been instructed to stay away from the school and its president.
Nineteen-year-old William Koberna will be released Monday after posting part of a $50,000 bond set at Portage County Municipal Court. He will be required to wear a GPS tracking device and to stay away from university President Lester Lefton and the school.
Koberna was arrested Sunday at his parents' home in the Cleveland suburb of Brunswick. The sophomore has been charged with inducing panic, a felony, and aggravated menacing. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Friday.
University officials say Koberna posted a tweet July 25 that included the threat: "I'm shooting up your school ASAP."
