Youngstown State University students awoke this morning to find the rock in the campus’s center defaced with ISIS messages,” reports The Vindicator.

A campus alert was issued, as images appeared online:

It is reported that the university isn’t considering the threat credible, but has contacted the FBI. They are also reviewing security camera footage.

A campus crew immediately painted over the rocks with white paint. Students are meeting Monday afternoon to repaint with an American flag.

The associate vice president for university relations Shannon Tirone said once they find out who did this, “I can tell you we won’t be lenient.”
