MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ An attorney for a college student involved in a gun scare at the University of New Haven campus says he expects his client will plead not guilty.

Twenty-two-year-old William Dong appeared briefly Tuesday in Milford Superior Court, and the case was continued to Jan. 14.

Authorities say Dong was arrested carrying two handguns on campus and had an assault rifle and bullets in his car.

Police say they found 2,700 rounds of ammunition and newspaper clippings about the Colorado theater shooting at his home.

Dong has not entered a plea, but defense attorney Fred Paoletti says he is expected to plead not guilty to charges including illegal possession of an assault weapon.

No shots were fired in the Dec. 3 scare at the West Haven campus.
