The student who was arrested in connection with the shooting threat made against Fresno State’s campus Monday is a member of the school’s football team.
From The Fresno Bee:
Christian Malik Pryor, an 18-year-old Fresno State football player, was arrested Monday in connection with a social media post that said the sender planned to “release my frustrations” with gunfire on campus.
Fresno State Police Chief David Huerta did not name Pryor during a late-afternoon news conference. But a short time later, Pryor was booked into Fresno County Jail on a charge of making a criminal threat. Bail was set at $20,000. There was no immediate word about an initial court appearance.
About two hours after the news conference, the university identified Pryor as the student who allegedly made the threat.
Pryor was arrested in the Duncan Building in the center of Fresno State’s athletic complex south of Bulldog Stadium.
In what I assume was an act of misdirection (if Pryor is found to be guilty), he sent out the following response to a friend who tweeted about the shooting threat.
@christexo @cusickblake it sounds like a joke but be safe.

The 6’1″, 170-pound walk-on wide receiver is yet to appear in a game for the Bulldogs, and I have a feeling that’s not going to change any time soon..
