Wednesday, 09 Dec 2009 02:21 PM

WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- Police say a Virginia student was aiming for his community college professor when he fired a rifle in a classroom full of students.

Twenty-year-old Jason Hamilton was arraigned Wednesday on charges of attempted murder and discharging a firearm in a school zone. He is being held without bond.

Charging documents state that Hamilton walked into the classroom Tuesday afternoon, pulled a hunting rifle out of a bag and pointed it at assistant professor Tatyana Kravchuk.

He then fired twice, missing her. The documents state Hamilton was taken into custody and then confessed.

A message left Wednesday for an attorney listed in charging documents was not immediately returned. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday.
