FSU student charged in threat incident

— CUMBERLAND — A Frostburg State University student was arrested Wednesday by the C3I Unit for allegedly making threats against Frostburg State University.

Marvin Chijioke Ogu, 21, was charged him with Disrupting School Functions as a result of an investigation into threats made against Frostburg State University. Ogu, of Lanham, is a student at FSU.

After the FSU Police were made aware of the threats being made on the web based messaging application Yik Yak, which stated that, “At 5:30 tomorrow, I’m going to start shooting”, C3I was contacted to assist in the investigation. C3I Investigators were able to make contact with the administrators at Yik Yak and obtain information on the internet provider (IP) address being used by the person responsible for issuing the threats, as well as the local address that the threats were emanating from.

Investigators responded to that location and made contact with the residents. Further investigation led to the identification of Ogu as the person responsible. After consultation with the Allegany County State’s Attorney’s Office, he was taken into custody at that time without incident.

In addition, the residence was searched and no weapons were located, and it was determined that Ogu had no means of carrying out the threat. Ogu further advised that the threat was “made as a joke”, and he had no intention of acting on the threat.

Ogu was taken before a District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance and has been released pending further court appearances.
