Fresno State dismisses player who threatened school shooting

The Fresno State Bulldogs have acted swiftly and dismissed Chris Pryor from the program after he made a school shooting threat on social media.

The move was announced on Tuesday evening.

“Chris Pryor was a walk-on freshman football player for us. Up until this incident we had no negative dealings with him on or off the field,” Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter told TMZ.

“When we were alerted of this yesterday we took the threat seriously. We worked with the Fresno State Police Department to contact Chris. As a result of Chris’ actions, he has immediately been dismissed from our football program.”

Pryor was arrested on felony charges of making a criminal threat.

If Pryor is convicted on the charge, he could face up to three years in prison.
