PHILADELPHIA, April 14 (UPI) -- Temple University officials said graffiti on the Philadelphia campus suggests the possibility of violence on the upcoming anniversary of the Columbine massacre.

The message, written on a bathroom wall last month, stated that on the April 20 anniversary, the tagger would "bring honor" to Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold -- the teens who shot up their Columbine, Colo., high school in 1999, killing 12 students and a teacher before taking their own lives.

The graffiti incident prompted university officials to send an advisory to students via email, voicemail and text message, reassuring the community that security was a "top priority."

The Philadelphia Inquirer said Temple officials declined to provide details of the increased security, but said they also alerted Philadelphia police and the FBI.
