Michael Pengchung Lee, who is facing federal charges for threats of a mass shooting at the University of Arizona, is being held without bond.
In a hearing on Monday, a Judge ruled that Lee is a flight risk and a danger to the community. He was ordered to be held without bond pending trial.
Lee, 27, was arrested Oct. 25 on a federal complaint warrant by the FBIs Southern Arizona Violent Crime and Gang Task Force for transmitting threats through interstate communications for threatening to commit a mass shooting at the University of Arizona.
The complaint alleges that Lee transmitted threats to commit a mass shooting at the university in a group chat on Snapchat. Lee is not a student at the university but expressed a desire to get revenge on all the chads and stacies!! Chads and stacies are commonly used terms by self-described involuntary celibates (incels). Lee made further reference to incel ideology, and finished the conversation by stating im gonna do it guys, my mind is made up and theres nothing u can do or say to stop me.
The United States will have 30 days from the arrest date to indict Lee.
