New details on the student who made threats towards LCC

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- News 10 has learned new information on how police first learned about the threat made against Lansing Community College.

Two friends of Damian Walker did alerted the police that day. One friend says he got a series of text messages from him telling him not to go on campus that day and if he did to wear red pants and a red shirt so Walker could spot him.

Walker then sent his friend a video of him loading his AR-15 magazines with thousands of rounds of ammunition on the floor, and for him to watch news channels at 3 pm to see what he was going to do.

Another one of Walkers friends contacted police saying she received the same information, and that walker told her not to go to school either.

Police went to Walkers apartment where they took him into custody. One of Walker's best friends tells News 10 that he doesn't believe Walker would ever hurt a fly, and that it was all just a joke.

Neighbors say they heard the commotion but wasn't sure what was going on.

"I just heard a lot of footsteps going up and down the stairs so I looked out the window and saw a bunch ATF agents very confused what was going on but I eased dropped and kind of figured out what was going on", said Runaway Bay resident, Josh Theisen.

Theisen has lived in the apartment complex since July and says that Walker never showed any signs of odd behavior, and that he pretty much kept to himself.

"Sometimes a little noisy in the hallway, but nothing really unusual. Passed in the hall a few times seemed okay, held the door open for me that kind of thing," said Theisen.

Walker was currently a student at LCC and left the Navy just last year.
He has been charged with one count of a false report or threat of terrorism. A judge set his bond at $100,000 dollars, and he's due back in court December 8th.

It is still unclear as to why he would make these threats.
