FARGO, ND (KXJB) – A high school hockey game in North Dakota turns controversial…

CNN affiliate KXJB reports an investigation involving three individuals who allegedly wore Ku Klux Klan-style cloaks and hoods in the student section at the state semi-finals.

Supporters of Red River High School turned out to cheer on their team with a traditional “white out”…that’s where fans wear white as a sign of solidarity.

An investigation by school officials began when a photo of the individuals wearing the pointy, white hoods and cloaks went viral on Twitter…

In this video, shot by KXJB, you can see three people in the cloaks holding what appear to be hoods in their laps.

KXJB reports the Grand Forks Public Schools athletics director notified administrators about the incident.

School officials have since identified the three as students.
