NOTE FROM WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY: A common question we have received is what kind of event this was. This was an event hosted by a Wake Forest University student organization. The organization hosting was Pi Omicron chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.

Wake Forest continues to work closely with the Winston-Salem Police Department, which is leading the ongoing investigation. We will continue to provide updates as they become available to us.
