The Connecticut State Police confirmed that video of Ku Klux Klan garb at a Donald Trump election celebration was filmed in East Windsor.

Although it was first believed that the video was filmed in Stafford, State Police spokesperson Trooper Kelly Grant confirmed on Monday that it was taken in East Windsor.

East Windsor First Selectman Robert Maynard told WTIC that police plan to speak with the “kids” involved.
