Upon further investigation, ACUPD has concluded there was no evidence of a racially motivated criminal act. Please see the most recent article here.
An ACU fraternity is under investigation for an incident in which a Black student was targeted with paintballs during a rush on Sept. 20.
An email sent out Friday evening by Dr. Phil Schubert, president of the university, stated the incident was reported to the ACU Police, which opened an investigation.
The name of the student and the fraternity involved have not been released.
The university does not condone hazing or any racially motivated misconduct, Schubert said.
“Along the way, we have spoken to the fraternity involved and are following the facts as they relate to disciplinary action once the criminal investigation is concluded,” Schubert said. “We will not tolerate hazing of any kind, of any person or any racially motivated mistreatment of one another.”
The investigation is still ongoing.
This is a developing story.
