Ore. man with sniper book held without bail
Oregon man found with gun, sniper book after football game held without bail
By The Associated Press

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) ' An Oregon man whom authorities fear may have been plotting a sniper attack on a high school football game will be held without bail until he goes on trial on federal firearms charges.

A federal judge in Medford said Monday that 26-year-old Raphael Enrique Amoroso of Grants Pass poses a danger to his community.

Amoroso was arrested on a drunken driving charge Oct. 7 after a police officer saw him leave a parking lot at Grants Pass High School hours after a football game. Police say he had a loaded pistol and a novel about a sniper attack on a football game.

He faces federal charges of having a gun on school grounds, and for having marijuana in the car while also being in possession of a gun.
