Man Arrested For Making UNL Threats

A 51-year-old Lincoln man was arrested for threatening to shoot people at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

UNL Police Captain Carl Oestman said a witness called 9-1-1 after Rodney Robinson told the witness Robinson was going to get an AK-47 and shoot a bunch of people on Campus.  Robinson also made references to the deadly shooting at Omaha's Westroads Mall and at Virginia Tech.

Robinson made the threat at a downtown bar and was later arrested at a public library.  Robinson was arrested on suspicion of making terroristic threats which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.   

Oestman said all threats are taken seriously and its too early to tell if this was simply an idol threat.
