( 4UMF NEWS ) Second Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill Black College Students In Missouri:
Things are real intense on college campuses in the state of Missouri right now. A day after widespread reports of black students receiving threats at the University of Missouri and hours after the arrest of a white man who threatened to shoot students there, a student at Northeast Missouri State University is also in jail for a similar threat.
Freshman Connor B. Stottlemyre, 19, was arrested at his dorm Wednesday morning after someone saw a violent message he’d posted to Yik Yak, the university told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“I’m gonna shoot any black people tomorrow, so be ready,” the message reportedly read.
Yik Yak, if you’re not familiar, is the controversial, location-based, anonymous message board that lets people post anything they want for other nearby users to read. Messages are called yaks.
It was another yak with a threat to “shoot every black person I see” that led to the arrest of 19-year-old Hunter Park, who is not a student, near the University of Missouri earlier in the morning.
Stottlemyre and Park were both charged with suspicion of making a terrorist threat. Police told the Post-Dispatch that it wasn’t clear if Stottlemyre’s Northwest Missouri State threat was related to what has been going down about 200 miles away at the University of Missouri.
