GREENSBORO, N.C. — A George Floyd mural painted over a boarded window at a downtown Greensboro business was vandalized.
The vandals used blue spray paint to deface the image of Floyd.
Greensboro police investigated the vandalism Sunday morning and took photographs of the defaced mural. Officers also contacted the store owner to make them aware of the vandalism.
The Greensboro artist who originally painted the mural spent hours Sunday repainting it. Jenna Rice grabbed her spray paint and got to work early in the afternoon.

The vandals also sprayed other boarded windows with the words “white power.”
It appeared on the same day as a large planned protest in downtown Greensboro.
