Police have launched an investigation of a Muslim teenager who either fell from — or was pushed off — a rooftop in Seattle.

Hamza Warsame died from injuries he suffered after falling from a sixth-story roof Saturday afternoon in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The King County Medical Examiner has not released a cause or manner of death in the case — which has fueled speculation of foul play.

Warsame’s family claims the Somali boy was brutally beaten and then shoved off the roof by other students near Seattle Central College — and social media users have been urging police to investigate his death as a hate crime.

Their suspicions were further fueled when the case received no local coverage with the exception of a post on the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, which reported the teen’s death and complaints by another Somali student who said SCC waited too long to notify students of the incident.

A Facebook page and Twitter campaign, each called Justice4Hamza, urged police to open an investigation — and the department announced Tuesday the teen’s death would be further
investigated.
