(KSL News) -- A student at a Utah business and technology college was arrested this morning for making threats against the school.

Police aren't releasing the student's name or the nature of the threats, but they say their office received a call from Mountain West College administrators.

Capt. Anita Schwemmer, West Valley Police Dept.: "Several students had come to them and were concerned because another student was allegedly making threats about coming back to the collega and 'going postal.'"

Kathryn Herrin, Student: "It was pretty good that the school handled it and the police handled it so well."

The school sent an e-mail to the student last night, suspending him. Police say they don't know if the man got the e-mail, but he showed up for class this morning and police arrested him without incident.

They found a gun clip in his pocket and a handgun in his car. He does have a concealed weapons permit.
