BAY SHORE, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island are investigating four hate letters sent to a gay advocacy group including two that threatened to kill its leader and burn down a housing complex.

The founder of the GLBT Services Network tells Newsday (http://bit.ly/1vQMg9W ) that the letters were received at the group’s Bay Shore headquarters and Woodbury office.

Two of the letters arrived on Thursday and referred to the other two which were received in the past 16 months.

Thursday’s letters came two days after leaders of GLBT and Suffolk County announced the tri-state area’s first affordable housing for GLBT seniors to be built on a parcel of land near the network’s Bay Shore offices.

GLBT provides safe havens and programs for gay, transgender and bisexual people.
