Man accused of bringing guns to BU held on $100k bail

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The man accused of bringing two guns to a commencement ceremony at Boston University appeared in court Monday and was ordered to be held on $100,000 bail.

Drew Massa, 28, was arrested on campus Sunday after police say he tried to walk in to graduation carrying two loaded guns and two additional magazines of hollow-point ammunition.

Prosecutors say he objected loudly to getting screened and tried to walk away before he was arrested. According to a police report he was dressed entirely in black with military-style pants, a zippered sweatshirt, and scarf.

A police report filed in Scituate in 2003 also indicates that Massa said he "had a desire to shoot all of his teachers.”

The District Attorney said Massa was licensed to carry firearms for hunting and target practice. It is also against the law to carry a gun on to school property.

If he makes bail he will be ordered to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet, stay away from all schools and turn in his firearms.

Massa is due back in court in June.
