Karal and another student were caught yelling the N-word while in the parking lot of Charter Oak Apartments on Oct. 11.

In the video, three people were seen walking in the parking lot saying the N-word to black students inside of their rooms and then laughing about it.

The incident caused several black students to feel unsafe on school grounds.

“I don’t feel comfortable here anymore,” Areon Mangan told News 8 days after the video went viral.
