The FBI has joined an investigation after a suburban Detroit church that served as an Election Day polling place was spray-painted with anti-black graffiti.
The vandalism happened Tuesday afternoon at Divine Restoration Ministries in Mount Clemens. The graffiti included pictures of babies and an anti-black slur.
Bishop-Elect James Richard Evans Sr. has said he believes the graffiti attack was made because of the election.
The Macomb Daily reports FBI Special Agent Jeffrey Eberle spoke to a crowd of about 100 people at a special meeting on racial equality held at the church on Thursday night. He says federal agents are working with the Macomb County sheriff's department to help solve the case.
At the meeting, many residents spoke of working together to rid the community of racism.
