A Maryland man accused of threatening to shoot up his workplace while identifying himself as “a joker” isn't facing immediate charges.

Neil Prescott won't be charged Monday, a spokesman for the Prince George's County state's attorney's office said, but the investigation is still continuing.

Prescott was taken into custody last week after the threats were reported to the police. Officers said they found about two dozen weapons in his apartment.

The 28-year-old Crofton man has been undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at a hospital since he was taken into custody.

The alleged threats were made just days after a deadly shooting at a Colorado movie theater during a screening of the latest Batman movie.
