Fresno State Football Player Banned From Campus After Death Threat

Chris Pryor isn't allowed to attend class after alleging he was going to shoot a student.

Published November 20, 2015

Whether he was serious or not, Chris Pryor's death threat was taken seriously by Fresno State.

Two weeks after the walk-on freshman was kicked off the Bulldogs football team for making a threat to shoot a student, Fresno State has also banned Pryor from its campus.

According to TMZ Sports, Pryor has not been allowed to attend classes at Fresno State and the school's athletic department says he will remain suspended until the university conducts a hearing. He also faces a possible felony charge for making the criminal threat.

This comes after Pryor threatened to "take a headshot" at a student on Halloween using an M4 Carbine rifle.

His dad had previously told TMZ that it was just a "prank" gone bad, but it looks like the school isn't seeing it that way at all.
