UTICA, N.Y. -- The investigation continues regarding the photo of the Utica College student with what appears to be a noose around his neck.

WKTV reached out to officials at the college Monday to try and get more information about it, but they would not speak saying the matter is being dealt with internally.

The picture was taken Friday night during a school sponsored event, and made its way around social media.

Three students involved with the picture have been removed from campus and will remain off campus until the investigation is complete.
