This is so scary! Who would want to target Asian students?
A note was found in a bathroom threatening a mass shooting of Asian students. It said it would happen Monday. It’s been a long, frustrating few weeks for the Asian American community. The note was found at Everitt lab. It’s a place a lot of students spend time and they met to talk about the threat tonight. Students from all different communities throughout campus talked about their fears and how the racially charged threat has affected them.
The U of I police department was also there. Officers were on high alert today. Student and staff say it felt better to come together and talk about this threat peacefully and brain storm about solutions.
"It’s good that at a place like the u of i we always have these types of meetings and kinda talk through it together work through it as a community," said senior student Nathan Cheng. "This one is particularly disturbing because of the violent threat," said David Chih, Director of the Asian American Cultral Center.
The FBI is investigating. There are no suspects.
