LACONIA, N.H. —

Investigators say hateful messages found spray-painted in a New Hampshire community are particularly concerning because they targeted a specific person.

Laconia police are investigating racist and antisemitic graffiti found at the former Laconia State School. The city manager called it appalling, especially because it called out a specific member of Laconia's Jewish community.

Police were notified on Sunday about the hateful messages and symbols that were spraypainted on an abandoned building and water tower at the former school.
