Martin reportedly held at mental facility following apparent threat

Threat on Social Media Prompts Harvard-Westlake to Close Studio City Campus Friday

- Harvard Westlake High School closed Friday as a precaution. "So, out of an abundance of caution, we made the decision to close school today", the email read, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Former San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin has added another chapter to what has been a very sad personal story.

Kway said the department was unable to publicly confirm that Martin's Instagram stories post was what caused the shutdown. The post also included an image of a shotgun and shells, with four social media accounts tagged and hashtags for Harvard-Westlake and the Miami Dolphins.

It was not immediately clear whether Martin posted the photo himself and he was not under arrest Friday afternoon.

Martin, who graduated from the elite private school a decade ago, posted an image of a shotgun to his verified but private Instagram account, writing "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your (sic) options are suicide or revenge".

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman told USA Today that although the investigation is still active, they do not believe there is a threat to any area school.

The alumnus was allegedly bullied at the school and during his time playing football for the Miami Dolphins.

Martin's post tagged Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito, two Dolphins teammates that Martin accused of bullying him.

Martin is reportedly being held at a mental health facility after the frightening apparent threat.

"I don't think people were really that anxious being there", junior Nikki Smith, who waited at school with other bus riders, said.

In 2014, an independent investigator for the National Football League concluded that Incognito, along with two fellow offensive linemen, engaged in a pattern of harassment that targeted Martin and others.

Midway through the 2013 season, Martin left the Dolphins to seek counseling, and Incognito was suspended "for conduct detrimental to the team" as a result of alleged racial slurs and threats of violence against Martin.

Last evening, we learned of an Internet post that mentions Harvard-Westlake by name.

Martin struggled though and was released a year later. Martin is black and Incognito is white.

Martin, the son of two Harvard graduates, attended Stanford University. "It takes away from your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity". "I think that we will continue to try to improve upon that".
