PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An ex-student accused of threatening a shooting at Oregon State University has been indicted on a federal charge.

Christopher Strahan is scheduled to be arraigned in Eugene next week on a single count of making threatening communications.

Authorities were alerted in February of threatening tweets posted by username "Hard Belly Dorm." Detectives identified the 22-year-old Strahan as the owner of the username and arrested him.

Strahan had been arrested a year earlier for threatening a campus shooting. Strahan pleaded guilty to second-degree disorderly conduct, and was sentenced to 20 days in jail and probation.

Strahan attended Oregon State from 2014 to 2017. He was a junior when he left.
