John Hagins, a student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, is serving time in prison without bond facing three felony counts.

The 19-year-old was charged with writing threatening to cause injury or murder, terrorism and first-degree murder.

Police said he confessed to threatening to shoot on campus on Thursday, the last day of classes before winter break.

“He said after he was done at the shooting range, he was going to the campus to do a Columbine,” Daytona Beach police chief Jakari Young said of Hagins.

Students on campus were shocked.

“I thought, what? That’s crazy. That doesn’t happen every day. It’s scary, it gets scarier as the days go by,” student Felix Hoehner said.

“I was quite shocked. I personally didn’t know until after my test,” said Embry-Riddle student Forrest Noey.

The campus was packed with students who were never locked down as school officials say the police were notified immediately.

Noey said he never took any classes with Hagins.

“But he was in one of my dorms that I moved into. It’s a few floors below me,” said Noey.

Noey said Hagins lived on campus his first few semesters here.

Investigators said Hagins was carrying an arsenal of weapons inside his backpack when police arrested him out of his residence in the Andros Isles apartments off campus.

Detectives found a collapsible rifle with multiple magazines, including six magazines and one magazine containing 32 nine-millimeter rounds, along with a scope.

“He would leave his apartment, he would go to Volusia Topgun to practice and then he would go to Embry Riddle,” Young said.

The principal said thankfully two students arrived first and informed the university after hearing about the alleged scheme on social media.

“Thank God they went ahead and stopped the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical from becoming the next national media story regarding a mass shooting,” Young said.

“Who knows how many lives they saved,” Hoehner said.

Hagins has been suspended and will not be able to return to school.

John Hagins is scheduled to appear in court for the first time on Friday.

Daytona Beach police said John Hagins, from the Miami area, failed classes and was placed on academic probation but authorities do not know if this was a motive in the alleged conspiracy.
