(Spirit Lake)-- School officials are looking into an incident in which racial slurs were directed to some members of the Storm Lake softball team during a game Monday evening in Spirit Lake.

It wasn't known where the vehicle or its occupants are from. 

In a statement, Spirit Lake Superintendent Dr. David Smith said such incidents absolutely won't be tolerated. He said some video is being reviewed to try to determine who's responsible.
