Ex-49ers lineman's disturbing Instagram post might have led to school closing

Ex-49ers lineman's disturbing Instagram post might have led to school closing

The school closed amid the threats, with administrators telling students to stay off-campus as a precaution.

While the incident has been publicized on dozens of social media platforms and news websites such as that of the New York Post, the Los Angeles Police Department, which discovered Martin outside of West Hollywood, essentially refused to discuss it. The threat was taken so seriously that the school was shut down for the day.

In a statement released to the school, President Rick Commons said that members of the administration chose to halt campus operations temporarily after they discovered an alumnus's Instagram post that suggested an attack on the school and specifically mentioned Harvard-Westlake.

The spokesperson was unable to confirm Martin's involvement and said they had no information about there suspect or a possible arrest.

In October 2013, Martin left the Dolphins team facility citing "emotional" reasons, that were soon discovered to be related to a pattern of harassment from some of his teammates, most notably Incognito.

Martin used his private Instagram account to post a photo of a shotgun and bullets, as well as the names of former teammates, including Incognito and Pouncey.

The post comes just over a week after 17 students and teachers were killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

On Friday, an Instagram account appearing to belong to Martin posted a story that included a photo of a long gun and ammunition. Martin is now in the custody of the police, according to another statement from the school. He later admitted to depression and said he had attempted suicide. He also added hashtags of Harvard-Westlake, the high school he attended, and the Dolphins.

In what may or may not be a coincidence, the gun picture by Martin was released almost four years to the day that the NFL's investigation on the Dolphins' bullying case was released. Martin played briefly with the San Francisco 49ers before retiring in 2015.

In 2016, he revealed he tried committing suicide multiple times over feelings he didn't belong in the privileged Los Angeles neighborhood where his family lived. "It takes away your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity".
