MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A man has been charged after faculty and staff at a Montgomery university were threatened.

Jerry Wendell Hayes III, 33, is charged with making terroristic threats.

According to court documents, the incident happened Thursday morning. Faculty and staff members at Faulkner University received several threatening messages through email. The messages caused school operations to stop and the campus was placed on lockdown.

Faulkner officials say they contacted the Montgomery Police Department and a warrant was issued for the person allegedly sending the messages. An MPD investigation determined that Hayes had been responsible for the messages and officers took him into custody.

Hayes was transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility under a $10,000 bond.

Although police determined that there was no immediate threat to the school, Faulkner says certain buildings were closed and faculty and staff in those buildings were asked to go home as a safety precaution.

Details on why Hayes allegedly made the threat have not been released.
