A black DJ was minding his own business at a Washington State tavern when a group of suspected white supremacists violently attacked him and shouted racial slurs.

Now the FBI is helping investigate what appears to be a vicious hate crime that occurred early Saturday in Lynnwood, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Police arrested seven men and woman after they say the group entered the Rec Room Bar and Grill and began stomping and beating the DJ. An Asian man who came to the DJ’s defense also was injured.

The DJ was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

“The violent behavior directed at members of our community over the weekend simply because of their race is disgusting,” Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary said in a news release, the Associated Press reports. “The Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the FBI in hopes of getting the strongest sentencing possible for these hate crimes.” 

Court records indicate the suspects belong to the Aryan Brotherhood, a hate group with an ugly history of violence against African Americans.
