UPDATE: Update: According to the state's attorney, the case against Enock Nyakana was dismissed.
Enock Nyakana, 28, of Stamford, was charged with second-degree threatening Monday, Aug. 8, at 11:30 a.m.
According to the report, he asked for a raise at Lawyers Group Advertising, where he worked as a graphic designer, and was denied, so he emailed management and quit his position.
Police said he then called a coworker and made a threat that he was going to "shoot everyone." He reportedly said he was overworked and stressed, and wanted to shoot everyone like the man at Coca Cola in Hartford, police said.
Employees reported Nyakana's threats to management, who called the police.
Police went to Nyakana's residence in Stamford, where his mother told them he was at UConn. Police went there and arrested him.
He told police he was joking -- he said he told his coworkers if he was "crazy and stupid" he would shoot people, the report said.
Nyakana posted $1,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Aug. 18.
