A 19-year-old University of Illinois student is being held on $250,000 bond after authorities say he threatened classmates while referencing the shootings at Virginia Tech. Danny Sammak was arrested Saturday after he made what authorities said were "terrorist-like threats," and made shooting gestures with his hands. Police and the FBI searched Sammak's home, computer and other property, and say they did not find any evidence he was part of a larger plot to harm others.
