A St. John's student is accused of threatening to carry out a gruesome 'Virginia Tech-style' attack on his New York campus, according to FOX's New York affiliate.

Radames Santiago, 18, of New York City, is accused of posting terrorist threats on his Facebook page, citing the 2007 campus shooting in Virginia that claimed the lives of 32 people.

In messages posted on September 14 and 15, Santiago allegedly wrote that he was going crazy and that people should watch as he carried out a killing spree on his campus, District Attorney Brown told MyFOXNewYork.

Facebook users saw the sinister messages and contacted police.

When questioned by police, Santiago allegedly told detectives that he was drunk and depressed at the time he wrote the comments online.

Santiago was arraigned Wednesday night and is charged with one count of making a terroristic threat. If convicted, Santiago faces up to seven years in prison.
