FORT MYERS, Fla. — Florida Gulf Coast University officials confirm someone(s) hung three Neo-Nazi posters on-campus buildings over the weekend.

Officials said the posters were brought to their attention on Sunday.

University President Mike Martin released the following statement:

"Over the weekend, someone(s) posted the deeply offensive messages (see below) on-campus buildings. To be clear, this is anathema to the values, standards, and conduct of our university community. If the responsible party(ies) are discovered to be associated with FGCU, that association will end immediately. If we discover this is the work of outsiders, we will send the unambiguous warning they are not welcome on this campus. Please all stay safe and care for one another!"

This is a developing story.
