Authorities say a Florida college student is being sent home to China after exhibiting "disturbing behavior," and purchasing a second assault weapon after coming to the attention of police.
University of Central Florida Police say they spoke with 26-year-old Wenliang Sun in February after he allegedly made unspecified "unusual statements" to a counselor.
Sun allegedly also stopped attending classes, dyed his hair and bought an expensive car, according to police. UCF Police Chief Richard Beary said these actions, taken together, raised alarms.
Because he was not attending classes, his student visa was revoked and he was taken into custody last month.
An immigration judge last week ordered him deported. He remains jailed awaiting deportation.
Beary said investigators believe "we just saved a bunch of lives."
