UMPD Statement Regarding Letter Posted by Campus Organization

Dear University of Maryland Community,

On April 28, 2014, a UMD student organization sent a letter to its membership about a member who is also a student at UMD.  The letter warned the group to stay away from certain areas of campus, specifically the Student Union, due to recent comments made by the individual member.

Over the past several hours, a copy of this letter has spread throughout our campus and concerns have been expressed about the content of the letter posted by the organization.  A University of Maryland Police Department Detective has interviewed this student and is looking into the statements made last night.  Although the investigation is on-going, there is no threat to the safety of the University community by this student.  Our Detectives have been working with both the organization, the student involved, and the Office of Student Conduct to bring closure to the issue.

More information will be posted here when available.
