On Friday, Martin posted to his Instagram story an image of a shotgun with many rounds of ammunition on his bed. Incognito and Pouncey were among those Martin had accused of bullying him when he was with the Miami Dolphins.

The school tagged in the photo, Harvard-Westlake High School in Studio City, Calif., was closed for the day due to a "security risk" according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

Law enforcement confirmed to Eyewitness News that former Niner Jonathan Martin was detained in Southern California Friday morning, and he is being questioned by Los Angeles Police Department detectives.

Harvard-Westlake released the following statement, per KTLA-5.

The spokesperson was unable to confirm Martin's involvement and said they had no information about there suspect or a possible arrest. The decision to close the campuses was made by school officials, not police, the LAPD officer added.

Raja said that as Lahore Qalandars got a tough time in the previous two seasons, they may win this edition of the tournament. Amid all the frenzy Najam Sethi, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board made it a point to address the mammoth crowd.

The "Bullygate" scandal rocked the Dolphins in 2013 as Martin, who played parts of two seasons for the Dolphins, claimed that he was mistreated by players and coaches.

The post, which was uploaded to the Instagram story of Jonathan Martin '08, featured a shotgun surrounded by shell casings. He was ultimately taken into custody at the hospital after attempting to check in for treatment, hours after making a disturbing social media post that prompted an area high school to close as a precaution.

This is not the first outburst from Martin, who wrote on Facebook two years ago he suffered from depression and wanted to committ suicide on several occasions. It also included hashtags for Harvard-Westlake, where he went to high school, and the Miami Dolphins.

Martin has largely been out of the public spotlight since retiring in 2015 after a brief stint with the Panthers.

If Martin did indeed post this himself, let's hope that he gets the help he needs. Martin was viewed by many as not a victim as much as someone who was o.k. with what was happening, up until he chose to walk out on the team from. He admitted to attempting suicide while playing in the NFL. "Neither black nor white people accept you because they don't understand you".
