HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man is accused of threatening members of a sorority during an event last month, authorities said.

Town of Holly Springs spokesperson Mark Andrews confirmed on Thursday that Colin Daniel Nicolson, 23, is charged with communicating a threat of mass violence on educational property. Andrews said Nicolson is accused of threatening to shoot members of the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority at a Feb. 11 sorority event at Campbell University.

According to Andrews, Nicolson is acquainted with some members of the sorority.

Nicolson was arrested by Holly Springs police on Tuesday at The Club at 12 Oaks, a Holly Springs country club where he is listed as the golf pro, news outlets reported. A club official didn’t immediately respond to a request to determine Nicolson’s status with the club, and online jail records didn’t list his status.
