LINCOLN PARK — A noose was found on DePaul's campus just days after Black Lives Matter activists shut down a conservative blogger's talk.

The university is investigating "multiple reports" that a noose — described as a "horrific symbol of racist intimidation" — was found on the Lincoln Park campus late Thursday afternoon, according to the university's public safety office.

"Those found to be responsible will be held accountable," the alert read.

Anyone with information is asked to call the office of public safety at 773-325-7777.

One student who led the protests received so many racist threats over social media that he had to temporarily deactivate his Twitter account, he said.
