HATE CRIME: A black student was stabbed by a fellow student, Xavier Nunez, in what is being called a hate crime, during a statistics class at Full Sail University.
Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Jeff Williamson said Xavier Nunez, 29, was in the back of the classroom when he walked toward the front, began yelling racial slurs, and stabbed a black male student in the neck. The victim was reportedly stabbed multiple times with a sharp object, possibly a screwdriver, Williamson told the Orlando Sentinel.
The victim was treated. Xavier Nunez has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
