FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Fresno City College instructor has been detained after allegedly making threats to the dean and students.
In an email from Fresno City College, the State Center Community College District (SCCCD) Police Department sent an emergency notice on Tuesday to Fresno City College students and staff that the campus was on lockdown due to a potential threat on campus.
They say the lockdown was a necessary precaution but added the person making the threat was not on campus.
The Fresno Police Department began an investigation and a suspect was taken into custody shortly after.
"I want to thank all personnel involved in handling this urgent situation who helped bring the incident to a quick conclusion," said FCC President, Dr. Robert Pimentel. "We are relieved that no harm came to anyone during this frightening episode."
SCCCD Police identified the person making the threat as 36-year-old instructor Richard Gregory Fine.
Fresno Police say Fine is on a 72-hour medical hold and will be arrested after he is released from the hospital.
This is an ongoing criminal investigation by the Fresno Police Department.
