BALTIMORE, Maryland (WVLT/KNOE) -Johns Hopkins University is investigating the discovery of a rope tied into a noose at a construction site in a building it owns off its Baltimore campus.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Johns Hopkins officials also notified federal authorities about what the university calls a potential hate crime. The university’s president, Ronald J. Daniels, said in an email Friday that John Hopkins condemns “this act of hate” and views the noose as a “direct threat” to its Black community.

A general contractor told university officials Thursday that a noose had been found at a site in Baltimore where the firm is renovating a laboratory.
