A Pennsylvania College student has been arrested for poisoning his roommate.

According to the Northampton County District Attorney, Lehigh University chemistry student Yukai Yang poisoned Jawan Royal with a deadly chemical called Thallium.

After royal called 911 for extreme pain and burning in his lungs investigators discovered racist messages written in Yang’s handwriting.

Yang admitted he bought Thallium online and put it in food and drinks that were stored in the dorm’s common refrigerator.

The D.A. says Yang actually poisoned the drinks to use on himself if he did poorly on his final exams.
