TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Tallahassee police say a message written in chalk on a sidewalk near the Florida State University campus is part of a "class project gone wrong."

Investigators say an FSU class had been working on projects after studying ancient writings and stories. One student opted to illustrate the project in chalk Friday, according to TPD Officer David Northway. The message was written near an apartment complex on West Call Street.

Investigators say there is no threat to the community, and there was no criminal intent behind the message.
