Man Who Threatened UCLA Is Found Unfit for Trial

A former postdoc at the University of California, Los Angeles who was charged last year with sending an 803-page manifesto in which he threatened a mass shooting at UCLA as well as killing individual faculty members has been found by a judge to not be capable of standing trial, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Matthew Harris is “presently suffering from a mental disease or defect rendering him incompetent to proceed,” wrote the judge.

The judge ordered that Harris be hospitalized. The judge also requested updates on his condition and whether he might be well enough in the future to stand trial.
