NEW YORK (WABC) – The president of Cornell University said Sunday that a series of online posts had threatened the school’s Jewish community.

The posts particularly threatened 104 West, the campus home of the Center of Jewish Living.

Campus police launched an investigation and administration contacted the FBI.

Gov. Kathy Hochul condemned the hateful messages in a tweet, saying in part:

“While it is unclear whether these are credible threats, the New York State Police are responding and we will take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of students.”
