MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Police in Burnsville are asking the public’s help in an investigation involving high school graffiti and phrases from a popular video game franchise: Call of Duty.
The Burnsville Police Department says the words “DNH Mafia” have been spotted in the city’s northeast section since August. One of the places tagged was the Burnsville High School following the homecoming football game.
Last week, similar graffiti – along the date “11/1/2013” and the phrase “last man standing” – were found in one of the high school’s restrooms.
Police say the date and the phrase are from a video game called Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, a first-person military shooter part of a franchise that’s now a household name.
Within the game, there’s a clan called DNH (Demonized Noble Heroes.) Police think that those involved in the graffiti are “familiar with the game.”
If you’ve heard anything about the graffiti or seen the phrases elsewhere, call a police officer at the high school at 952-641-1359.
