July 21, 2018

SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the vandalizing of a town sign in Massachusetts with the message “kill cops.”

The Boston Globe reports police in Southbridge discovered the sign Friday vandalized with the phrase at a soccer field.

Police Sergeant Wayne Boiteau says the sign has been removed, and as of Friday no arrests were made in connection with the vandalizing.

The message was found the same day slain Weymouth Police Sergeant Michael Chesna was buried. He was shot and killed last Sunday, and suspect Emanuel Lopes is in custody.
