Brookline High School says it's pursuing disciplinary action after students were captured making racial slurs in a Snapchat video.

In a letter released Wednesday, school officials say two "deeply disturbing" videos were made by current and former students at the school.

WCVB-TV reports the first video captured three boys repeating a racial slur, and it was sent to a member of the school's African-American Scholars. The second video shows white students directing a racial slur toward an older driver.

The school says it has identified the individuals in the first video, and it is currently investigating the second video. It has not specified how the students will be disciplined.

At least two teens were Brookline alumni.

The school says they will bring in "community support" Thursday.
