HALIFAX — Court documents allege a Dalhousie University medical student who was facing expulsion told a psychiatrist he would obtain a gun and kill up to 20 people and himself.

The search warrant documents filed with Halifax provincial court allege that 30-year-old Stephen Gregory Tynes met with a psychiatrist on Aug. 20 and told the doctor he would stab the associate dean of undergraduate medical education and her daughter, who was also his classmate.

In the document, police say they later went to an apartment in Halifax and seized 1,834 rounds of ammunition for rifles, a Russian SKS rifle, a Henry Golden Boy .22-calibre rifle, a banana clip for a rifle, a baggie with three spring clips and bore cleaner, two ammunition boxes, a firearms acquisition card and a gun club card.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Dalhousie University says Tynes has been suspended from the school.

A spokeswoman for the public prosecution service says Tynes was arrested on the same day as his meeting with the psychiatrist and was later charged with two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and one count of engaging in threatening conduct directed at a person or any member of their family.

Chris Hansen says Tynes appeared in court last Tuesday for a bail hearing and was released on conditions that he live at his father's home and have no contact with the two women he is alleged to have threatened by name.

The court also required that he not possess any firearms, alcohol or drugs, and that he stay away from the Dalhousie's campus except when he is with his parents or his lawyer.
