Suspect Identified In MU Social Media Threats

Columbia, MO  (KTRS)  A suspect is in custody in connection with the social media threats directed at black students and faculty at the University of Missouri.

Police say 19-year-old Hunter M. Park was arrested early Wednesday morning  at a residence hall at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, where he’s a student.  Park is being held on a preliminary charge of suspicion of making a terrorist threat.

The online posts on YikYak and other social media Tuesday threatened to “shoot every black person I see.”

The threats follow the resignations Monday of the university system’s president and the Columbia campus’ chancellor after student protests over the university’s handling of complaints about racism.
