West Bridgewater: College student charged with making terrorist threats

A college student from West Bridgewater, who is a junior at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, is accused of posting online threats that said he planned to “shoot up” a Massachusetts movie theater.

21 year-old Gregory Hamalian was arrested at the school Friday night, according to a spokesman for the Worcester County District Attorney’s office.

The alleged threats did not specify a particular theater.

Hamalian is being held on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Worcester District Court on Monday.

He is facing a charge of making terrorist threats and four counts of threatening to commit a crime.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
