Arrest made in connection with threat at ISU

TERRE HAUTE, IN (WFIE) -

Indiana State University Police make an arrest in connection with a threat about a possible shooting.

A student reported seeing an anonymous threat posted online Thursday.

The student was on the ISU blog of the "Yik Yak" app when she saw the message which read,  "I wonder if this school shooting is going to go as planned tomorrow."

Rashon Ken'nise Marshall-Brown, a 19-year-old sophomore from Indianapolis was taken to the Vigo County Jail on a preliminary charge of harassment, a Class-B misdemeanor, according to University Police Chief Joe Newport.

He's expected to appear in court on Monday.

There was a second threat found on a note in a men's bathroom on Thursday afternoon that said, "Start shooting at 1:15 be ready. Jihad."

No arrests have been made in connection with that threat.
