Richard Gregory Fine, an instructor at Fresno City College, has been detained after allegedly making threats to a dean and students, KFSN News reported.
The campus was also placed on a lockdown, but officials said that was a precaution.
“I want to thank all personnel involved in handling this urgent situation who helped bring the incident to a quick conclusion,” said Robert Pimentel, the president. “We are relieved that no harm came to anyone during this frightening episode.”
Fresno Police say Fine is on a 72-hour medical hold and will be arrested when he is released from the hospital.
