Purple Protest: Four Students Under One Roof

The purple house in tech terrace is continuing to stir up controversy. For the second time in two years, the rental property at 25th and Indiana Avenue has been painted purple.

The landlord is protesting a city ordinance that says no more than two unrelated people can live in a single family home.

NewsChannel 11 has learned that four Texas Tech students are currently living there. Two are brothers, the other two claim to be distant cousins.

City officials say both the landlord and the tenants have been cited for the violation, and if they don't pay up, the city will take legal action.
