Two investigations are underway Saturday at Cal State University, Long Beach after a few student organizations received threatening and hateful, racially charged messages that included a picture of Hitler and promising to “finish what he started.”

One of the investigations was about posts left on the La Raza Student Association Facebook page threatening to shoot officers of the organization, ABC7 reported. The posts also contained racial slurs.

Campus officials said they’ve contacted the person they believe is behind the post, according to the news station, but there were no immediate reports of arrests.

The other investigation involved flyers students said had an image of Hitler on them and were left at the multicultural center and read “finish what he started,” according to ABC7.

Lt. Richard Goodwin of the CSU Long Beach Police Department told ABC7 there are no suspects in that investigation and they do not have any witnesses.

University officials told the station they’re taking both threats seriously and campus police are on high alert.
