BOWIE, Md. (AP) - Authorities say they are investigating an incident at Bowie State University where graffiti resembling a swastika was found on a column of the campus’s Martin Luther King Jr. Center patio.

Campus police say the graffiti was found Thursday on the campus of the historically black university.

Vice President for Student Affairs Artie L. Travis sent a letter to the college community saying the incident is being investigated as a possible hate crime. The graffiti has since been removed by police.

University spokeswoman Damita Chambers says the graffiti was on a visible part of campus where several departments are housed.

Students held a rally Thursday night to speak out against hate speech.
