LOS ANGELES (AP) - A law enforcement official says former Miami Dolphins player Jonathan Martin was taken into Los Angeles police custody after a threatening Instagram post. "He's not a threat anymore".

Harvard-Westlake closed its Studio City campus Friday due to a possible security threat posted on social media, authorities confirmed.

Friday afternoon, ABC News reported that Martin was taken into custody.

Albarran did not immediately know whether the man would be arrested or face any charges. In the post, a gun and shotgun shells are clearly displayed, with the caption, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge". Martin made serious accusations about several Dolphins players, coaches, and trainers, costing Incognito a one year absence from the National Football League and psych counseling and two staff members their jobs.

Martin's chilling Instagram post tags the names of Incognito and another Dolphins player Mike Pouncey above the shotgun.

A harrowing social media post that reportedly came from the victim of the Dolphins' bullying scandal caused his alma mater high school in California to shut down Friday. In a Facebook post in August 2015, Martin wrote of multiple suicide attempts , sleep problems and substance abuse.

LAPD Sgt. Frank Albarran told the L.A. There has been a spate of school shooting threats across the country, prompting closures, since the February 14 murders.

The school later issued a statement saying: "Last evening, we learned of an Internet post that mentions Harvard-Westlake by name".

However, the school made a decision to close both campuses as a precautionary measure, according to LAPD Officer Drake Madison. Given the heightened tensions surrounding guns in the wake of the high school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, some sort of response by police would seem likely.
