A Milwaukee man who authorities say planned to kill dozens of people in a mass shooting at a local Masonic temple pleaded not guilty to weapons charges in federal court on Tuesday.

Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23, appeared in US District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where he is charged with possession of two machineguns and a silencer, according to online court records. He was arrested last month.

Hamzeh made his not guilty plea in front of US Judge David Jones. Hamzeh responded "yes sir" several times to the judge's instructions. After the brief hearing, Hamzeh was swiftly lead out of the courtroom, passing his father and crying mother who extended her hand to her son.
