FBI Investigating If Bowie State Univ. Student's Killing Is Hate Crime

 Richard Collins III

The FBI is helping authorities determine whether the killing of a visiting student by a University of Maryland student was a hate crime, authorities say.

University of Maryland student Sean Christopher Urbanski, 22, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as first-degree assault in the death of Richard Collins III. 

University of Maryland Police Chief David Mitchell said at a press conference Sunday that he sought the FBI's help after finding that Urbanski is a member of a Facebook group called "Alt Reich: Nation," where members post racially charged material. Urbanski is white and Collins was black.
