Missouri University Police Hold Suspect for Threats Against Blacks

Wednesday, 11 Nov 2015 08:43 AM

A suspect was in custody on Wednesday for making online threats to shoot black students at the University of Missouri following racial protests that prompted the school's president and chancellor to step down this week, campus police said.

"University of Missouri Police have apprehended the suspect who posted threats to campus on Yik Yak and other social media," said in an alert to the campus in the city of Columbia posted early on Wednesday.

The announcement followed an anonymous Yik Yak posting Tuesday tagged "Columbia."

It read: "I'm going to stand my ground tomorrow and shoot every black person I see."

Threats prompted stepped-up security on the University of Missouri campus, but classes were operating on a regular schedule, authorities said.
