COLLEGE PARK, Md. - A University of Maryland student has been arrested and charged with posting an Internet threat claiming he planned to go on a shooting rampage on campus hoping to kill as many people as possible.

Campus police said in a statement that 19-year-old Alexander Song of Fulton, Md., has been identified as the person who posted on a website plans for a rampage that would "kill enough people to make it to national news." The message also warned people to "stay away from the mall." Police did not elaborate.

Song was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after his arrest Sunday. Song, who was not armed when he was arrested, faces a misdemeanor charge of disturbing school activities.
