A Harford Community College student who police described as emotionally disturbed was arrested on the school’s campus Monday after he allegedly made threats against himself and others.
Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Harford Community College at appoximately 10:40 a.m. to investigate reports of a “homicidal/suicidal” making “dangerous threats” near the school’s library, according to agency spokeswoman Monica Worrell.
According to police, the male suspect “verbalized his distress to his own medical personnel.” Those individuals contacted the Shepard Pratt Mobile Crisis Team, who called 911. Deputies working with Harford Community College Public Safety officers identified the man, who was taken into custody without incident at approximately 11:20 a.m. The man had no weapons on his person or in his vehicle, and was transported to the local hospital for evaluation.
Worrell declined to identify the man, as she said no charges are pending against him.
