Salt Lake City Police Investigate After Floyd Mural Marred

Salt Lake City police are investigating after a mural of George Floyd was reportedly vandalized over the weekend. Sgt. Keith Horrocks said Monday that a tar-like black substance was poured over the painting sometime Sunday morning. He said the mural was repainted before officers could collect evidence. He says investigators are searching for nearby security cameras and asking for the public’s help with information. Mayor Erin Mendenhall and Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz were among those who expressed anger over the vandalism.
