Case of Dalhousie student accused of threatening to kill 20 people set over

HALIFAX — The case of a Dalhousie University medical student who allegedly told a psychiatrist he would kill up to 20 people and himself has been set over until next month.

Stephen Gregory Tynes was released on bail last month after he was charged with two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and one count of engaging in threatening conduct.

The 30-year-old student was also charged with unauthorized possession of a prohibited device in relation to an overcapacity cartridge magazine.

Tynes did not appear in court today and the case was set over until Oct. 8 so the defence has more time to review the disclosure.

Search warrant documents filed with the court allege that Tynes told a psychiatrist he would stab Evelyn Sutton, Dalhousie’s associate dean of undergraduate medical education, and her daughter who was also his classmate.

In the documents, police say they seized 1,834 rounds of ammunition, rifles and gun accessories from a Halifax apartment.

None of the allegations has been proven in court.
