    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.

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