Update on Wednesday’s evacuation

Dear colleagues,

Yesterday afternoon, Ingham County court arraigned LCC student Damian Walker in relation to the evacuation of our Downtown, West and East campuses on Wednesday, Nov. 29. Walker has been charged with false threat of terrorism using the internet/computer.

He sent a message to individuals via social media, and the message included a threat to LCC. The tip was called in by an individual who received the message from the suspect. This is a good example in action of: if you see something, say something.

As this situation continues to evolve, please refer any media calls to Public Relations Director Marilyn Twine at 517-483-1426. Please refer any calls from parents concerned about safety to Director of Public Safety Bill French at 517-483-1847.

If you want to talk to someone, please take advantage of LCC’s employee assistance program. The program provides you free access to local, licensed counselors. If your students are concerned, please encourage them to contact our free, licensed counselors at 517-483-1924.
