WJLA.com reports: D.C. police are investigating a possible hate crime at a high school for the deaf on the campus of Gallaudet University. Police Chief Cathy Lanier says a black student was held against his will for about an hour early Sunday in a dorm room by other students at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf.
Lanier says the students used a marker to write ‘KKK’ and draw swastikas on the student. They then let him go and he contacted authorities.
She says police have identified seven suspects in the incident. She says six of the suspects are white and one is black.
Lanier says the school has fully cooperated with the investigation.
Gallaudet University Provost Stephen Weiner says the student, who was not identified, is at home with his parents.
