David Hookstead Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

California State University, Fresno football player Christian Pryor was arrested Tuesday after he posted on anonymous social media app Yik-Yak that he was going to shoot up the school. The post warned that Pryor was going to specifically take a “headshot at a hot blonde.”

The message was captured in a screenshot by CBS Los Angeles and reads:

the time is here. @3PM I will release my frustrations. Tired of dirty looks, get rejected, nd being talked abt bc how I dress. My choice of weapon M4 Carbine and I will take a headshot at a hot blonde

Fresno State Police Chief David Huerta knew that time was of the essence, and needed to track down Pryor before any damage could be done. (RELATED: ‘Distracting’ App Causes School Shooting Scare)

“We had approximately three hours from the time we received it to the time the threat was going to occur. Our job was to do everything we could to either stop it, prevent it or give our students, faculty and staff the best opportunity to be safe,” Huerta told NBC News.

Police tracked the IP address that originated from the post which led them to Pryor. He was arrested and booked in a Fresno County Jail on the charge of a terrorist threat.

Pryor, who plays wide receiver, has not yet earned any stats for the Fresno State Bulldogs.
