Man sentenced in Lansing Community College threat
Lansing – A Michigan man charged following a threat that prompted Lansing Community College to evacuate in November has been sentenced to six months in jail.
Damian Douglas Walker, 20, apologized Wednesday 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.
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.
