The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office said 21-year-old Ryan J. Day went to the school on March 8 and caused a disturbance. Day allegedly refused to leave, and said he’d return and shoot a student he believed had been bothering his sister.

On Monday, Muskegon County District Judge Maria Ladas Hoopes ruled there’s enough evidence for the Muskegon Heights man to stand trial.

Public defender Joseph Fisher said the legal definition of terrorism doesn’t fit the threats that Day’s accused of making.
