Police find threat against Muslims in Virginia Tech bathroom

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech authorities say they are investigating a threatening message found inside a bathroom on campus.

Local news outlets report campus police received a report Monday concerning graffiti inside a bathroom stall at Price Hall. The message read: “I will be here 11/11/2015 to kill all muslims.”

The Virginia Tech Police Department says it alerted the campus Thursday and is investigating the matter.

Mark Owczarski, a spokesman for the university, says the university hopes the notice sent to members of the campus community will help in the investigation.

Owczarski says the incident is still under investigation and no further details would be provided.

Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
