The FBI has reportedly identified six “tech savvy” adolescents as persons of interest in the bomb threats against more than a dozen Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the nation. The threats took place on January 31 and February 1 – the first day of Black History Month.
According to NBC News, The FBI says that the juveniles – located throughout the country – used sophisticated methods to disguise the source of the threats. Law officials also told NBC News that they believe the threats were racially motivated.
Among those targeted was St. Louis’ own Harris-Stowe State University.
