FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Old Fort in downtown Fort Wayne was targeted by vandals.

Friday morning volunteers found somebody had spray painted the phrase, "no pride in native genocide," on the south-facing exterior facade.

The organization, Historic Old Fort Wayne, says the Parks Department was notified and a formal police report was made.

They plan to clean the graffiti off Saturday with a process that will cause minimal damage to the fort itself while removing the spray paint.
