Former MHC student pleads guilty to handgun assault at college

September 5, 2012

The man accused of using a handgun to assault fellow Medicine Hat College students at the institution's residences earlier this year has pleaded guilty to 9 criminal offences. The 26-year-old was arrested in late January at MHC following a late-night dispute with fellow students in which he allegedly used a pistol in an assault while wearing a balaclava. The man, who was kicked off campus and evicted from his residence following the incident, was subsequently charged with extortion and other offences stemming from allegations that occurred earlier in the school year.
