College Football Player Arrested for Mass Shooting Threats

Fresno State football player Christian Malik Pryor was arrested on November 2 for allegedly threatening a gun-related mass shooting on the school’s campus.

The 18-year-old allegedly claimed the attack would commence at 3 p.m. and the school announced his arrest at 2:28 pm.

According to the Fresno Bee, Pryor is alleged to have made the threat anonymously through Yik Yak, a social media application for smartphones. Fresno State used Twitter to announce Pryor’s arrest and to assure students he “was [allegedly] acting alone.” Classes continued as usual.

Authorities arrested Pryor “in the Duncan Building in the center of Fresno State’s athletic complex south of Bulldog Stadium.” He is a “non-scholarship walk-on player for the Bulldogs who had yet to appear in a game.” The Bee reports that Pryor was booked into the Fresno County Jail and charged with “making a criminal threat.” His bond was set at $20,000. Remaining Fresno players were told not to discuss Pryor’s case with the media.

Pryor’s alleged social media post, which caught authorities’ attention, said: “the time is here. @3PM I will release my frustrations. Tired of dirty looks, get rejected, nd being talked about bc how I dress. My choice of weapon M4 Carbine…”

A gun-related threat was also issued about a pending attack against the Arizona State University campus as well. The person who issued the threat said the attack would be a retaliation against “normies” and would occur Monday around 12:30 pm. No attack took place and the person who made the threat has yet to be discovered.
