ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Albany County District Attorney is looking into an alleged racially charged attack against three University at Albany students.
The fight caused an uproar. It culminated in a huge rally on the UAlbany campus in support of the three female students who claimed they were attacked. They said their attackers used their fists and hurled racist, hurtful words.
The fallout has been ugly. Accusations and threats have buzzed around social media, including the National Football League.
San Diego Chargers tackle Tyreek Burwell is the brother of the one of the alleged victims. He posted a tweet threatening one student believed to be involved. It was quickly deleted.
According to one student, that young man has dropped out.
No charges have been filed in the incident.
NEWS10 ABC reporter Anya Tucker reached out as best she could to Tyreek Burwell and the students who claim to be victims. She also reached out to the school’s president’s office, but he was not available.
No one was talking.
