NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – School officials say a noose found in a bathroom at Nathan Hale School Friday was not racially motivated.

City spokesman Kyle Buda said Friday night the noose was created by a student who attempted self-harm. He said the student was taken to the hospital.

According to Superintendent Iline Tracey, a noose made from shoestring was found.

WTNH previously reported the noose was found at Nathan Hale-Ray school. The story has been corrected to Nathan Hale school in New Haven.
