Posted Updated

JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — Some high school students in Johnston County are getting a lesson in hate.Someone vandalized their school, painting racist symbols in the hallways.

School officials found "KKK" and a Nazi swatiska painted on walls, lockers and a car in a shop class at

Smithfield-Selma High School

Thursday morning.

The principal of the school believes the vandalism may have been an inside job, because the suspect opened a window to get inside the school, went to a janitor's closet to get a pair of bolt cutters, went to a shop class and used the bolt cutters to get into a closet that had some paint.

The vandalism was cleaned up a few hours after its discovery. Police are looking for suspects in the incident.
