ODU student faces terrorism charges


An Old Dominion University student facing terrorism charges is out of jail on a $50,000 bond.

According to ODU's student newspaper, this all began when 20-year-old Tyler Bergeron, supposedly asked his roommate, who is a firearms instructor, to get him a concealed weapons permit and help him with shooting better.

Some also say he began to dress and act uncharacteristically and told his roommate he was "gonna start shooting people "at school.

Investigators searched his apartment and found a journal in which he claimed he was a domestic terrorist.
