A threatening message found scrawled in a men's room has caused Farmingdale State College to enhance its security just days after the Connnecticut elementary school slaughter.
College officials are investigating the incident after discovering the message, college officials said. Newsday reported that the graffiti read: “Ima shoot up campus on Dec 18 2012. Be prepared —- gonna kill as many of you as possible! — —- Killer.”
The college sent an email out to the entire campus, saying the "threatening" message was under investigation.
"Nevertheless, in light of recent events, we are notifying you. Rest assured, we are taking precautions, including additional State University Police personnel," University Police Chief Marvin Fischer wrote in the email.
College officials have notified the Suffolk County Police about the incident, but said they've discovered no credible threat related to the graffiti.
"Our response has been to investigate, notify the campus and, in an effort to be pro-active and overly cautious, we have increased patrols by State University Police," Farmingdale college spokeswoman Kathy Coley told Patch.

The scrawled message has been associated with a Los Angeles-based hip group known as "Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All," and is similar to one found in April at a Newark, N.J, high school, Newsday reported.
