Exchange student to be deported
MEDIA (AP) — A Taiwanese exchange student accused of threatening a shooting at his high school near Philadelphia was sentenced to four to 23 months in prison, but a judge ordered immediate parole to federal authorities for deportation.
The Delaware County Daily Times reported An-Tso Sun, 18, entered an open plea on Monday in Delaware County Court to terroristic threats.
School authorities were alerted in March that he talked about a May 1 shooting at Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School, warning a friend not to come to school that day.
Sun called it a joke, but prosecutors said he had several parts of a 9mm handgun that a detective was able to assemble and fire along with two loaded 9mm magazines, a crossbow and a ballistic vest from his host family. Prosecutors also said he had researched how to buy weapons.
