I think this is an important story and would benefit from other NowPublic contributors working on it. I’ve flagged it as News Wanted and invite others in relevant locations to look for more evidence.

good stuff:

I spent an undue amount of time at Davis, mainly at the aquatic center (aka “small pool”).

Update: a freshman was arrested in connection with the explosive scare at Tercero Dorm:

Mark Christopher Woods, 19, is a freshman Economics major from Torrance.

Pfotenhauer, a spokesman for the UC Davis Fire Department, said that
shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday, a woman reported students with
possible explosive devices in a dormitory room.

That led to the questioning of four students in the bedroom, including Woods. The other three students were released.

was charged with possesion of materials with the intent to make an
explosive or destructive device, and also possession with intent to
make such a device on school grounds.

Thanks for the flags and Jordan, for the update!
