A mural with a slogan for Black Lives Matter was vandalized just hours after being painted on a street in Orlando, police there said.

Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon posted Saturday on Twitter that his department was investigating the incident.

He also shared images with graffiti written on top of the mural that said “not enough” and “abolish police.”

The slogan was painted on Friday with the red, black and green of the Pan-African flag, which is a symbol of Black pride.

The mural is 400 feet in length and 30 feet in width. It is one of several of its kind to appear in cities across the country following the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
