    The University of Maryland student accused of threatening to go on a shooting rampage on campus is expected to plead guilty today in court. Alexander Song faces eight charges.

    Prosecutors say the honor student posted a threat online in March, claiming he was going to "kill enough people to make it national news."

    Police found no weapons in his dorm room or at his parents' home. The school banned Song from campus after his arrest.
