Man sentenced to jail in community college threat

LANSING (AP) — A  man charged following a threat that prompted Lansing Community College to evacuate last year has been sentenced to six months in jail.

The Lansing State Journal reports 20-year-old Damian Douglas Walker apologized last week for the “terror and stress” he caused, saying he never intended to cause any harm or fear. He earlier pleaded guilty to making a false report or threat of terrorism.

Walker was arrested at his Lansing-area apartment, shortly after the college’s campuses in Lansing, Delta Township and East Lansing were closed in November.

Authorities say one of Walker’s friends told police Walker told him via text to avoid LCC and sent him video of him loading AR-15 rifle magazines with “thousands of rounds of ammunition on the floor.” Police found two rifles, magazines and ammunition.
