DeKALB — Hopkins Park’s bandshell was found vandalized with graffiti Thursday.

The bandshell’s white interior bore the phrases “All Lives Matter,” “Trump” and “BLM” with an “X” drawn through the letters with black spray paint.

This comes ahead of the 5 p.m. Black Lives Matter town hall meeting to be held at Hopkins Park.
