In a statement, the school said: "Late last evening, Harvard-Westlake was made aware of a disturbing and possibly threatening social media post attributed to a former student, which specifically mentioned our school".

The good news here is that Martin has been taken into custody without any school violence going down. It is unknown at this point if he has been charged with any crime. Police reported to both campuses. It was not immediately clear whether Martin posted the photo himself and he was not under arrest Friday afternoon. Expect to hear more on this fairly soon. "On the gun, Martin wrote "#MiamiDolphins" and "#HarvardWestlake". In wake of the tragedy at Parkland, Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Harvard-Westlake made a decision to shut down today as a result of the photo.

Martin, 28, posted a picture Thursday in an Instagram story featuring a gun with the chilling words "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge". The image showed a shotgun, ammunition and tagged four accounts, including those belonging to former Miami teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey. "We will provide more information later today". The investigation found that the offensive tackle was subjected to "a pattern of harassment" by Incognito, Pouncey and current Giants guard John Jerry.

Martin revealed on social media in 2015 that he had attempted suicide several times. Martin was ultimately traded to the San Francisco 49ers, where he played for one year before being waived.

Martin spent three seasons in the National Football League, playing for the Dolphins before leaving the team in October 2013.

The shutdown of Harvard-Westlake comes a week after 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla. "It takes away your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity".
