CROOKSTON, Minn. - Police and University of Minnesota-Crookston officials are investigating an incident Thursday in which someone hung a statue painted to depict a person of color from a campus building.

The carved wooden statue, about three feet tall, was hung by a rope from the roof of the UMC Student Center and was visible from the ground, Crookston Police Chief Tim Motherway said. A passing student or staff member apparently alerted campus officials early Thursday morning.
