SOMERS- A UW-Parkside junior has confessed to creating a hit list targeting students at the school, according to the Kenosha County sheriff's department.
Kenosha County sheriff's detectives have confirmed that Khalilah N. Ford, 21, of Louisville, KY is the person who made the list of targeted students, according to a document issued by the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff's department is requesting misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing and officer against the student.
The Kenosha County sheriff's department says some recent racially-motivated threats at University of Wisconsin-Parkside were a hoax.
The university had tightened security after threats were made against black students But the Sheriff's Department said in a news release Friday night there was never really any threat of harm to students.
The agency says a student who was on a list of targets confessed that she created that list and fliers found in a dormitory. The lists and fliers were found after a report of a rubber band noose found in a residence hall.
The department says the student created the list and fliers because she was not happy with the initial response from a resident assistant to the noose.
