A Maryland high school student who was arrested last week for bringing a handgun to school also had a mini-arsenal of firearms and explosives at his suburban Washington home, Montgomery County officials said Tuesday.

According to WJLA, during a search of 18-year-old Alwin Chen's home, authorities report finding several guns, ammunition, grenades, a detonator for C4 land mines, a ballistic vest, and a list of grievances against his fellow students. News outlets have reported that Chen was planing to do some target practice after school. The incident occurred just a day after 17 were killed in a shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

"This illegal and unsafe behavior will not be tolerated in our school community", Clarksburg High School Principal Edward Owusu wrote in a letter that was sent home to parents and obtained by ABC affiliate WJLA. An attorney for Chen said Tuesday that the student has two college scholarship offers and has never been in trouble before. But Assistant Montgomery County State's Attorney Frank Lazzaro told the Associated Press that Chen told police he brought the gun for protection because he was being harassed and bullied by other students at school.

The defense said the weapons allegedly found at the home were bought legally and they also weren't being kept in Chen's bedroom, but another room.

Chen's journal was also found.

"This is a young man who has desires of helping people, in terms of being a police officer or being in the military", Felsen added.

The judge said Chen posed a danger to the community. "Looking at his parents, I don't see any neon sign or flag on them that would make me think they have these types of weapons".
