Special to the Sun
October 30, 2007

The St. John's University freshman who brought a rifle to campus last month was ordered to enter a psychiatric facility yesterday, the Queens District Attorney's Office said.

Omesh Hiraman, 22, was found incompetent to stand trial by Judge Joseph Zayas following a psychiatric report released at Queens Criminal Court. It was determined that Mr. Hiraman would not be capable of understanding the case against him, the district attorney's office said. The court turned Mr. Hiraman over to the New York State Commissioner of Mental Health for a 90-day mental evaluation, the office said.

Since Mr. Hiraman was found mentally incapable to stand trial, the charges against him have been dropped, the office said.

How could they find him incompetent to stand trial when he competently researched, and then purchased, a weapon?
