summary
Ambreen Sharif claimed she was targeted by a man in a pickup truck shouting “watch the f**k out, we’re killing all of you.” But a statement released by UT Arlington Friday afternoon says the entire incident was false and that it never happened, nor was Sharif even on campus that day. “In follow-up interviews today, the student said the confrontation did not occur”.
