Several students have withdrawn from an Ohio college after a threat to kill black students was scrawled on a men's bathroom wall.
The FBI has launched a hate crimes investigation into the graffiti threat, which was found in a bathroom at a Hocking College residence hall in Nelsonville, Ohio.
Some 400 of the school's 6,500 students are black, reports the Columbus Dispatch. It's unclear if the date mentioned in the threat -- Feb. 2 -- has any significance to the school or the community.
The Associated Press reports that school officials were also alerted of another note, stating "kill the n-----s." The incidents have left a "threat of a mass killing looming over black students at the community college," AP reports.
