Racist Messages Left at Predominately Black Church in Colorado Springs

From The Denver Channel:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Police are pursuing a suspect they say has been leaving racist messages outside a Colorado Springs church predominantly attended by African American parishioners.

KKTV-TV reports Colorado Springs Police say they won't release the suspect's name as the department's Intelligence Unit works to make contact. Authorities anticipate an arrest soon.

The racist signs have appeared on three consecutive Sundays outside New Covenant Church. Pastor Roland Joyner says the signs were brazenly put up during afternoon service this past Sunday.
One said "Black men be aware, you are the target."

Holly Garvin says while she's not a member of the church, she replaced the racist signs with messages like "no more violence" and "God loves us all" hoping the person responsible will think twice before posting more hate.
