A message threatening Donald Trump supporters was spotted on a Mission Hill building over the weekend, according to multiple reports.
"Kill your local Trump supporter," the graffiti read, according to an image by the Boston Herald.
Boston Police Officer Stephen McNulty said that while police did get a call about the graffiti Sunday morning, it was already painted over when he visited the area that same day. Mayor Marty Walsh assured in a statement that the incident is being taken seriously.
"We don't take threats against any of our residents lightly, and the Boston Police Department is investigating this threat," Walsh said. "As we head towards Election Day, I encourage all residents to share their views in a peaceful, respectful way, and to make their voices heard through their vote."
