Kean University President Dawood Farahi drew audible gasps from faculty and students on Tuesday when he informed them that the suspect who recently made “abhorrent” threats against black students was a black former student and “active participant” in an on-campus rally on Nov. 17. “We are saddened to learn that the person allegedly responsible was an active participant in the rally that took place on campus on Tuesday, Nov. 17 and is a former student of Kean,” Farahi said to gasps. Police say 24-year-old Kayla-Simone McKelvey, who is black, left the Nov. 17 demonstration on Kean University’s campus and created an anonymous Twitter account to post a threat against black students. “I will shoot any black person I see at Kean University,” she allegedly wrote in one tweet. McKelvey, a former president of the Pan-African Student Union, has been charged with third-degree creating a public false alarm.
