BREAKING: Instagram Account Under Investigation

Late Monday night, the instagram account belonging to Wenkun Zhang was made known to the police for disturbing comments and potential threats of violence. The account was first flagged by students of the University of Houston who claim the account also belongs to a student. On February 24, 2018 a post by the account stated:

“U guys want to know what the most f– up part? I can’t even call the cop LOL this is what oppression mean when ur rights are beefing violated and u have no one to go to for justice so I’ll just kill everyone -Derp”

The account, which has been made known to both UHPD and Fort Bend County Police, has not posted since February 24.

The UHPD made a statement on twitter that reads:

“UHPD has been contacted by concerned members of the UH community regarding an individual’s posts on social media. Thank you to the UH community for looking after each other and sharing your concerns. UHPD is looking into the matter.”

The UH Police Department stated that as of this time, all classes will continue tomorrow as normal, and that the case is an open investigation.
